Arduino radio module for a few Km range, speed doesn't matter

by stefano.falconetti on Tue May 07, 2013 5:16 am

Hi Support,

sorry for bugging on this silly question but i would need your help on choosing a product. I'm looking for a radio module to use with my Mega 2560, with Arduino in general, that can do a few Km transmission range. I would then use a similar receiver to test. Do you have such a product ? No GPS, mobile, radio is what I'm looking for.

Any advice on what you have for this purpose ?


Thanks,

Stefano.

Some of the higher-end XBee-pro radios have pretty good range. http://www.digi.com/products/xbee/

Thanks Bill, look like being interesting. Looking for a board to piggy back the xbee module on the Mega in your store.

The XBee Adapter will fit on either of the protoshields.

or

There is a wireless shield from Arduino.cc, but we don't carry it in the store:
