It might help if you would add detail about what you are trying to accomplish...?

Sounds like you are after RF Comm's- if you need simple 1-way comm's then parts like this
http://www.robotshop.com/433mhz-high-sensitivity-transmitter-receiver-pair-rxa30.html
will do the trick, with Virtualwire to perform Tx one end and Rx on the other
http://www.open.com.au/mikem/arduino/VirtualWire.pdf

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.
