Cheap Long Range RF Link
« on: March 19, 2009, 09:39:49 AM »
I've been continuing my search for a long range RF link and found this
http://www.epn-online.com/page/new58514/atmel-introduces-800-900mhz-rf-transceiver.html



Cheap too - http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=AT86RF212-ZU-ND
Datasheet- http://atmel.com/dyn/products/product_card.asp?part_id=4349
But I can't seem to find an exact number for the range - only the words " really long range" , etc.  Anyone know of the range?

Plus it seems like it even has built in RSSI!

Range is typically deducted by the frequency, the power, and if there are any obstructions right?
