any hows I have been interested in robotics for a few years
now and i recently got the idea of trying to control my robot
using my amateur radio. would it be legal using ham radio to send commands to my land based robot and have it send me info back?
(yes i and licensed)
I guess the rules differ from one country to another, but in Denmark, you couldn't get the license without knowing what's allowed in which bands.
As part of the license exam, you have to demonstrate working knowledge of how radio TX and RX works as well, but sadly, a lot of the knowledge has gone down the drain with all the cheap commercial radios.
However, I'm sure you'll be able to make simple transceiver for one of the ISM bands (or modify an existing X-ceiver) and then you'd have no problems as long as you keep it "experimental" (some experiments spans several years
