Re: Missing dBs between ROS 4.11 and 5.0rc2 w/ SR71-15

After reading this post I noticed the same behaviour on r52N and r52hn

Did some upgrades to v5 RC 1, & 3 ended up rolling back to 4,12 gained 5/6 Db

Surely the later releases should improve signal strength

Hi

I have a run of approx 70 metres. Would an rb433 be able to run on an 18v 1 amp supply or should i Go for 24 or 48 v, using standard cat5e solid cable UTP.
