HamWAN has approximately $2800 in the account and no debt presently, which will cover this Gold purchase pending approval, and the outstanding repair items needed for Haystack.

> Bank should be ~5.7kWh. 3 sectors up there and 3 NetMetal modems, as well as a 900MHz modem and a CRS125 switch. The sectors should take about 5.5W each, the NetMetals, 900MHz and CRS125 weren't measured but let's assume 10W each there. So that looks like 65W total to me, for a runtime of ~88 hours, or 3.7 days. And oh yeah, the PDU draws a little too. We can also do load-shedding manually during an outage.
