I’d really like to know what the extra 10 millawatts would actually do. Would it really make all that much difference? Its been a while but I think back in the CB Walkie Talkie world as kids we did have a 200mW walkie talkie set and I thought Oh Boy I’ll get 4 times the distance. What actually happened was that normally when you got the the other end of the campus at Michigan School For The Blind the signal would start to weaken. But at 200mW it was strong clear across campus till you started to go off campus and it was a few more feet till it was gone. So the actual distance we’d normally use if for was clearer but it didn’t actually reach all that much further. It was a lesson back then too I can remember. The difference between 100mW and a Watt however did make quite a bit of difference. Boy those experiments are suddenly comming back to me now playing around with those things as kids. We’d spend several hours playing around and trying to figure how to improve the range.
