This radio modem module is the ideal solution for Medium range (>10km) telemetry or communications. RFD900u is the smallest, lightest and most sensitive diversity switched modem on the market. It has Integrated transmit low pass filter to reduce interference to other co-located radio links and uses the latest technology pHemt, high gain (> 24dB), high linearity Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), and is compatible with 3DR / Hope-RF radio modules with license-free use in Australia, Canada, USA, and NZ.
