Is there cell-phone reception in the area you're trying to measure?

Hi guys thank you for all the questions and answers ill start from were i am im in outback australia so heaps of sunlight and yes we have mobile coverage here so that sounds like a cheaper option i am building a ground sensor that measures moisture level in the ground and i will start on my property and want to start making these if i can make them cost effective as i have many farm friends that need this technology so its not a waste if i can make them for a decent price as it will save us on fuel and time so i will be making heaps not just 1 out here moisture level can be very helpfull info . id like to do it but thats why im asking all the qs as i dont know enough about this feild to build it yet im a tv tech full time so i am pretty good at repairing at component level and know basic electronics just never daveled into this before hence the guidence smiley hope this helped you see what im doing and hope you can help thanks again.

I've got a few extra of these laying around. Perhaps you could use them to modify your previous post.
