Hi Steve, I have a couple of prototype boards using the RFM22 modules communicating across the room with a bit of wire hooked to the module, and have designedMessage 1 of 40 , Nov 5, 2012View SourceHi Steve,I have a couple of prototype boards using the RFM22 modules communicating across the room with a bit of wire hooked to the module, and have designed a board for a proper version with an SMA connector so I can try them with real antennas. I should get the boards in a couple of weeks, and they will also take the higher power (1 watt) version, the RFM23BP.73,John

Have you made much headway with the RFM modules?
This is of interest to me.

Well done John!!! I hope that you will make these available to the community. Such an incredible idea you have. Can t wait to hear about your progress of yourMessage 40 of 40 , Nov 7, 2012View SourceWell done John!!!
I hope that you will make these available to the community. Such an incredible idea you have. Can't wait to hear about your progress of your project.
