  1. Where to mount VHF/UHF and HF antennas on Cybnertruck?

    Side sail doors are mysterious in terms of sealing/opening/closing. My guess is that there will be a big surprise in that compartment, mostly electric-related.
  2. Where to mount VHF/UHF and HF antennas on Cybnertruck?

    e. Thinking Cybertruck might be semi-submersible, I am thinking of penetrating (with a drill, oh, no!) this area... Dunno about how one can fish a cable that route. :( Thanks, KN6KEZ
  3. Where to mount VHF/UHF and HF antennas on Cybnertruck?

    I need to mount my VHF/UHF ham antenna, mag-mount is out of the question and glass coupling antennas suck (rf-wise) on Cybertruck windshileds with a lot of Alu content. Also, clip-on concept is gone for the Cybertruck body, IMHO. Where the heck can I mount an antenna that is fed by a coax...
  4. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    I keep confusing J1772 connector with J1772 signaling protocol. Tesla uses J1772 AC signaling protocol via a custom connector. J1772 signaling protocol does not support V2G, V2V, etc. SAE-J3068 is an evolution of J1772 signaling protocol, supports higher voltages and 3 phase and it is downwards...
  5. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    Thank you for the clarification and detailed explanation. My 2013 Model S was dual charger, never could take full advantage or higher current capability anywhere outside my home. The rumors about V2G and serious AC power output makes me think that at least for the top-end Cybertruck a second...
  6. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    I was rambling on about inverter configurations here with the thought being that if you used a single H bridge to produce three phase that you would need to derive a neutral if your application required it so that it might be best to implement 3 separate single phase inverters so that the...
  7. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    >That essentially confines you to ∆ connected loads. If you wanted to do Y for more current or >_/\ for biphase (V2H or V2G) where would you get neutral? Can you clarify? I am not familiar with 480V/US configs -- do they have a neutral or not? (I know 380V 3ø in EU is "Y" config. Thanks.
  8. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    >Thus it appears you would need 3 separate inverters clocked 120° apart. Yes. I understand that SuperCharger stations use powerful 480V transformers, but that's an entirely different animal and it is very expensive to commission. Most US industrial settings, warehouses, etc, have 3 phases, so...
  9. What kind of AC charging will make Cybertruck better?

    The more I think about Cybertruck AC charging, the more I am inclined to think that cybertruck will support 3 phase (480V) industrial charging on top of single phase 240V support. If you take a look at SAE-J3068, the proposed North American standard, it is an evolution from single phase like...
  10. Tent + kitchen setup: a bit impractical

    The idea is that after dinner you 'collapse' the kitchen under the sleeping deck and you go inside for the rest of the night. The In-out of the bed area while the kitchen is setup is impractical, you would have to step over a table!. But the biggest problem is where to store backpacks and stuff...
  11. How many miles per day on a strictly L2 charging network?

    It takes a lot of Margaritas to do the planning. Once in Russia, I'll switch to Vodka. My initial research is pretty grim -- Apparently, I cannot find warm garages with Electricity every 400Km, and my Russian expedition guide pushes me towards two gasoline generators in parallel (yuck, that's a...
  12. Overlanding Range

    Yes, but you can stop by "civilization" when switching spots. I know, it sucks, but solar is not going to cut it. Or.... borrow a gas generator, I won't be ashamed.
  13. StarLink Truck Mode Test

    It has 3D orientation. It is very cool. But I am afraid that this kind of gears cannot withstand road obuse / off roading. I would transport this in foam, face down.
  14. StarLink Truck Mode Test

    Here is a video I posted of my StarLink operating in a truckbed. Works like a charm. It takes about 1 minute to lock in. If truck moves around I can stioll get some sognal but every 3 minutes or so, it re-orientates. I am not looking for mobile operation, parked truck is OK. However, for a...
  15. How many miles per day on a strictly L2 charging network?

    I plan to cross Russia. Zero chargers in some places, only one SuperCharger (in Kazakhstan, Very Nice!!!) I have to install electrical outlets ahead of time. Thanks for the tip about A Better Route Planner.
  16. How many miles per day on a strictly L2 charging network?

    I like this number, easy to remember: 100kwh per day. Assuming that CT battery > 100KWh, which it is, L2 charging might require up to a full 24 hours of continuous L2 charging, wow.
  17. How many miles per day on a strictly L2 charging network?

    Can a Tri-Motor Cybertriuck safely travel ~250miles per day using an L2 charging regimen as follows? Or is it more like 200miles per day? 1) 4-6 hours of normal driving + cabin conditioning, all-season conditions. (-40C to +40C) 2) 2-4 hours of lost time (not charging, not driving) 3) arrive...
  18. Where do you want to go?

    I am planning to install L2 chargers every ~300-400km in warm garages. There are no SuperChargers.
