    Standard ARES Power Connector
    The connector is the 30 amp Anderson PowerPole,
    which has been adopted by many ARES groups nationwide.
    The connector has many advantages:
    high current capacity,
    compatability with higher and lower current
    rated PowerPole connectors,
    polarized yet "genderless" construction.

    The primary reason for a common ARES connector is that it will
    allow ARES members to connect their radios to any power source
    in an emergency situation (a fellow ARES member's vehicle or
    home station, a shelter, fire station or hospital with an
    ARES power supply, etc). If you don't want to change out
    all your existing connectors, you should at least build a
    jumper cord to adapt from your connector to the PowerPole.
