The "take-home message" here is that a proper antenna - the dipole - is substantially cheaper and probably more effective than a massive increase in power.
Hey,I reduced the transmission speed from 5500 to 2000. Also i brazed a 17,3cm long wire to the GND of RX and TX. Didn't change anything. I'm so disappointed.I dont want to achieve more than 1000 meters. I just want to achieve atleast 100 meters... There must be something that blocks my signals i think
line-of-sight. It's a motion tracking system (TX) and the RX-Side is on a drone. So it shall be a 100m line-of-sight. Would be nice to have more range, but 100 metres is the first goal..Look at my attachements above. Is this "dipole" antenna correct? m not sure if i understood it right.
So i am at the end of this "cheap" transceiver kit? You also recommend other Hardware, like this APC220?Never thought, that would be so hard.
Yea, the speed is what i worry about. And 2km is too much. It would be nice to have a antenna with maybe 500-1km, easy handling (coding!).. Are there no other Arduino users with the same problem?@OldSteve:Im looking for a serious shop to bye a apc220 module. There no serious german shops i think? I found only this:http://eud.dx.com/product/arduino-apc220-wireless-rf-modules-w-antennas-usb-converter-844143011#.VlIx0-KUQ4chttp://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=57#.VlIyUuKUQ4dAnd it has very long shipping... i have a time issue
The transmitter and receiver dipole must be parallel to each other for maximum range.
