Ok: The one at active-robots.com (sorry for the bad link) is actually good for about 6miles with an omni.
2.4ghz SS – the fcc gives you a full watt you can play with. These are half watt units.
Omni for a link? Because you might want multiple transmitter sites.
Why the AV unit? because you wouldnt need a PLL at each slave transmitter site. 🙂
A plain whip works.. but at a loss (you’ll get about 2.5 miles) on the transmit side. The recieve side needs a good (29.00 USD) directional.
This is being done right now at Stanford University in “testing and research” mode. Once the research is done, it will be what I use for my linking.
Sorry for terseness – I’m just doing way too many things and have not had the time I wish I did for lengthy posts, getting back to the good people who have called me, etc.
