I'm sure that it will run longer, but I'm not making any guarantees to my 
local ham community that it will run longer.  I don't know the exact 
specifications on the Wireless network equipment that I'll be connecting to 
it.  I think there are five dishes (transceivers) associated with it.  As to 
how much current that will draw, I just don't know.  My hope is that it will 
run long enough to decide if we want to continue using it, and then connect 
the generator.
