The Little White Mountain repeater is powered exclusively by solar energy. During winter there are times when the solar panels may not fully charge the batteries.
A friendly reminder that kerchunking (transmitting a carrier without identifying, for the purposes of bringing up a repeater) is not only against the radio regulations, but is wasteful of the limited power available on solar powered repeaters.
