I finished my WB (RC1a) this morning. I anxiously powered it and waited for it to burst into a ball of fire. Thankfully it powered up and began working. The entire ground plane gets pretty warm, but even after running it for 20 minutes nothing was ever really hot. The fact it even works means I will mark this as a success.
I realize range varies wildly based on the attenuation, gain, antennas, etc, but I am curious about what kind of range people are getting out of their builds. With external antennas mine works to about 7-8 feet away on an HTC Inspire and 10-11 feet away on an iPhone 3GS. Much lower than the 20 feet ladyada got with hers.
What version did you build?
What kind of range did you get on your build?
Did you use internal or external antennas?
