6.1 Power Sources and Antennas

Antennas

RRL Stations come standard with an omnidirectional antenna. The antenna should always be mounted on the outside of any enclosure for maximum communication distance, as they communicate via line-of-sight transmission. 900 MHz radios can communicate over distances up to 20 miles (30 km). To maximize communication distances between RRL Stations, an optional High Gain Antenna is available (pt# 108987).

Before sourcing any other power accessories or antennas to use with RRL Stations, refer to the radio module manufacturer’s product manuals for approved devices at: http://www.digi.com.
