Testing radio link progress

Progress has been slow in the radio link side of things. Testing of the new RFD-900 modems has been painful for a number of reasons.

1. They chew up a lot of power and go through a lot of batteries and I have a feeling that when the RFD-900 demands a lot of power, the batteries just cannot supply it.

2. There seems to be packet loss, and some very strange things occuring. I’ve been in contact with the supplier regarding this.

3. I SUSPECT there is some interference between the wifi and rfd-900…but there is a lot more work to do there.

So in short, I’m a long way from doing some long range tests and I’m probably going to need to purchase more batteries.
