Re: [sierra_wilderness_radio] Lowest voltage for Sierra
- Hi Colin
Not having a variable power supply yet I can say
that both my HB ARRL/Noga versions put out 1.25 watts RF
on a 2S 7.4 volt lipo battery at 40m.
Rx seems fine at this level.
I think it was spec'd at 10 volts minimum but seems to operate
OK at this lower level.
The Rx on the Wilderness version seems OK but barely moves
the needle on the wattmeter on Tx at this voltage on the same band.
(ie a couple of milliwatts)

Has anyone tried to see how low a voltage the Wilderness Sierra
will operate on? Would be interested in finding out how low this
rig would go for a change.
