Power poles, 12v -> 24v buck converter into a passive POE injector for a Ubiquity node running AREDN. Much less current draw than the small inverter I used before. Hopefully this won't flog the HF bands with QRM.

@rev_mook put it all in a metal box, ground the box to the (-), add a 10uF and .01uF bypass cap between +12 and right where you ground it, add the same to the output of the boost reg. (INSIDE the boost's enclosure if possible) Clamp a choke onto the ethernet cable (run it thru the core more than once if it will fit), that will help a lot with RFI.
