I’m having some problems with those Unmanned telemetry radios, maybe someone here has an idea. I kind of think they might not work correctly…
I’ve switched both to a different Net ID (37), and now they can’t connect anymore. I have tried switching the ground station one back to 25 but to no avail. Also, when the ground station radio is set to 37, the air radio’s LED turns solid green (!), the ground one, however, continues flashing (which seems to indicate that the air radio does think it has a link, the ground one however is still searching… weird. This shouldn’t even happen at all I think). At any other setting I’ve tried the air radio’s LED keeps flashing.
Of course, I can’t connect the air radio directly to USB to check its settings, since it only has the DF13 connector – I can’t even find a cable for this. How would the layout have to look?
Another question regarding these: I’ve ordered the 500mW version. The default for Tx Power seems to be set at 11dB. I assume 20dB would be full 500mW here as well, and then it’s a factor of 0.5 for every step down, correct? There is no manual for these to be found anywhere it seems.
Any advice? Thanks!
