Order Radio Shack part number 980-0878 (1.5V, 200mA Solar Module) from the Radio Shack Answers Catalog, or by calling 1-800-THE-SHACK. This part is not carried in the retail stores.



Attach the Positive (red) lead to WHT, Negative (black) lead to GND. Adjust R458 (Indoor Humidity Slope) so that the Indoor Humidity on the Heathkit console just reads "99" (i.e., just toggles between 98 and 99) in full sun at noon Standard Time.
