    so I built this dumb thing...

    Cobra 19 in a 50 cal can, with a 12v 12ah battery. External speakers connected one to the external hookup, one to the PA hookup. K30 mag mount with 15' cable randomly bunched up inside, soit can be stretched out an placed on a sufficient ground plane, or left on the ammo can if necessary. Placing the can directly on the ground helps a lot if a metal surface isn't available. The hole next to the Mic is for a 1/4" headphone jack. The cigarette lighter plug serves as both an aux power outlet for a phone/ipod/whatever charger, and also serves as the charging port for the internal batts.

    Its kinda dumb, but it works and makes a decent camp base station, or a loaner cb to put in vehicles that don't have radios, like when we go off-roading.

    How about adding a small solar panel to maintain the battery when not in use. Harbor Freight has them on the cheap, I think it a solar powered float charger. I see the possibilities with this in deer camps / camping. I need one for my daughter so see can talk to her friends instead of using mine... I don't like sharing.... lol!

    I thought about solar, but it would require a 15 watt panel to provide just over a 1 amp charge in full sun. That would take 12 hours to charge from depleted, if the radio was turned off.

    I love thw idea of solar, but the little float charger/maintainer panels just wouldnt cut it.
