The power levels in my battery array dipped lower than usual overnight, even with yesterday's clouds reducing my solar panels' efficiency.
06:15 AM #
The panels were a little splotchy with rainwater and pollen, but I don't think that's the cause. Time to check the power storage systems.

The original battery storage checks out OK, but the large array of car batteries I added to my solar system after the zombies rose does not.

@grork Seems to be a battery problem. But you're scaring me.

I found a battery with a bad cell in it and another that looked like it was going. Fortunately, there are plenty more to be salvaged.

The only thing limiting my electrical storage capacity is the time I want to invest in salvaging batteries from abandoned cars #zompocalypse

I suppose I shouldn't feel bad, not figuring out the ham radios on my own. My construction background DID give me valuable solar expertise.

Scanning ham radio frequencies again tonight. Trying to find a signal from a North Sea oil platform the guys up on Rib Mt. found last night.

The broadcaster was talking in the clear, asking for any information about the zombie situation in England. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

I suppose anyone broadcasting from a fortress-like oil platform wouldn't be worried about giving up their position to raiders. #zombies

@grork I am curious to know that, too. Haven't heard much of Operation Galveston in many months. It was Navy-led.

@grork Knowing what is happening a hundred miles away is a complete mystery these days, so you are thinking bigger than me.

@grork The Mosinee group had one but it stopped working.
