Newbie question: I live in the country about 12 miles from town. That 12 mile is mostly (10 miles) over water. Aliexpress offers a 5 element 915 Mhz Yagi antenna with 9 db gain, With that antenna and a 1262 device can I expect connections with good reliability ?
There are several resources online that can help you out this this.
Also in you want to play with coax loss, antenna gain…. This site lets you put all that info in.
Both are free to use.
Great resource. Thank you!
If you have reasonable line of sight and then stock antennas might work fine for you. If the signal needs to penetrate trees or other vegetation then you will benefit from a yagi.
