6600m power requirements on battery

Ken Miller

Just curious; does anyone know the approximate average RX amperage for the 6600M? The various documents I have found seem conflicting. I want to be able to switch to emergency/battery power if needed for a limited period of time. Voltage would be 10.8-13VDC. I normally use an 80Ah SLA battery. I'm trying to work up a guesstimate for radio usage time on battery. I could either hook up the battery directly, or run the battery through an inverter into a 12V power supply. Most of the moderately priced home UPS systems seem under powered so I'll probably roll my own. Thanks, de K6WGX 73.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
