It might help if you would add detail about what you are trying to accomplish...?
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

Sounds like you are after RF Comm's- if you need simple 1-way comm's then parts like this

will do the trick, with Virtualwire to perform Tx one end and Rx on the other

Works great, inexpensive way to get started with RF comm's.

I am particularly fond of these little devices:

They have a simple SPI interface and work well. They are not as easy to use as the Rx/Tx modules using the virtualWire interface but they give you that extra control.

This shield should keep you busy for a month or two and you will learn lots of new stuff.
