The most powerful RC + Telemetry system on the market "Ultimate LRS 2000mW, 433MHz"

I have a great news for the RC community that you can DIY the most powerful RC + Telemetry system on the market "ULRS 2000mW" using OrangeRX 433MHz 1W module and my 2W power mode. You need to have a magnifying lens and a small tip knife to do this mod. My greatest gratitude to FlipFlap (Ben) for his excellent firmware of ULRS.

Gain of the power MOSFET may differ slightly from module to module so one can get variation of 100 to 150mW higher or lower. Did the 2W mod in OrangeRX 433MHz 1W module and got 2030mW at 9V Drain supply.

I have cut a track on the RFM23BP which connects the RF MOSFET to the 3.3V main power line and power the RF MOSFET with external variable power supply and set it at 9V, achieved 2030mW RF output power. 

After running throught the night, measured the temperature of the RF power MOSFET, is was 148 deg F, on touching it was just warm, not hot. Its because of the fact that the PCB design of the RFM23BP and its integration in the OrangeRX host board all together makes a large heat sink for the RF power MOSFET.

Tested with inbuilt spectrum analyzer of ULSRcc, did not observe any unexpected surprise. Perhaps you can analyze that better with your real spectrum analyzer.

Thanks Ravi ;-)

How is your radio reacting to this much RF? I had to separate my UHF booster with few feet of coax since shielding didn't help.

Did not observed any issue so far
