Hello DIYdrone community,
I am currently getting into research involving interference issues on the 2.4GHz frequencies. I am interested in equipping my drone (arduboat) with a high power (1W) dipole wifi antenna to set up a long distance wlan on a raspberry pi.
I have read examples of people using these Alfa wifi antennas on drones, but I have not found any instances where they have encountered interference issues with these specific antennas.
I am fairly new to this kind of problem, so I was wondering if anyone could offer advice regarding avoiding interference between 2.4 GHz devices.
Wi-Fi has 14 channels ranging from 2.412 GHz to 2.484 GHz. Access points (smartphones and tablets too) often allow user to manually select certain channel. In my project I'm using Wi-Fi both for sending commands and receiving feedback.
would you migrate to 5GHz ? it will avoiding interference from 2.4GHz. it can get 3Km distance over WIFI 5GHz, not sure if it can meet your request.
