I have had very good luck with Honda generators. Designed in Japan,
assembled in the US, I have 2400 + hours on mine. Get the EU series
with the built in inverter. Lets the engine run slower when the load
is not as great. The propane conversion requires drilling the carb,
but makes it a instant start, low maintenance reliable solution. No
filling it with gas or gas going stale.

The serious ham radio people use the EU2000 when they go to remote
locations.

Actually NO, the "Serious" Ham Radio People have nice little 6-12 Kw
Diesels on trailers that they take out on Field Day, because the little
2Kw Hondas can't provide the power required by a MultiBand, MultiOp,
2Kw Per Frequency Stations, Plus all the Logging Computers, Lights,
Cookshack, and Heaters that the "Serious Guys" haul out into the
Woods......

We used a 20 kw diesel and were not really serious for the contest.  The 2
KW units are almost worthless for anything but the small stations.

Depends on what you call serious.
Obviously the OP would want a 6 or 8 kW diesel for his application.
2kW per frequency?? 1500 watts is amatuer radio max. Anything over 100 watts
is pointless for local operations, ARES, etc. Some people consider serious
radio to be the least power for the purpose.

I was thinking portable generator. EU2000 weighs 50 pounds, the reasonable
maximum for a single person.
