Hello fellow DIYers. I have finally decided to act on my dream of creating a UAV, and I thought I'd start out by asking what is probably a often-asked question from beginners:
How do you remain in contact with a UAV when it isn't in line-of-sight? (For example, behind a mountain or very far away.)
I'm assuming the regular answer is "well, you don't...", but there must be some ways. One can't use a satellite, but one could potentially use satellite internet with a strong enough transmitter and a bunch of extra electronics, even if it's just for telemetry. What are the possibilities?
