One of the things that I've been interested in recently is amplified 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 radios. The standard 802.15.4 radios at 2.4 GHz are around 2mW or so which buys you a few meters of transmission capability. It's not super useful which is why I use a lot of 900 MHz radios. But recently, I've been interested in the 2.4 GHz band again, especially with many devices being used in this band. I decided to throw together an experimental circuit with a low cost 2.4 GHz front end (RF Axis RFX2401C) to see if I can optimize it for good range. Anyways, I'm curious to see what kind of performance I can get.
