802.11AH HaLow IOT wifi 920mhz

I have started to see cheap modules using the 802.11AH standard, this gives up to 30mbit, not blazing fast but it should go about 1000m using omni antennas at 100mw. these could be utilized for a long range video and telmetry link.

Could be a good solution , but there is not much information about the technology.
I found this manufacturer that gives a little more specifications and inner working

Wired Ethernet gstreamer pipeline delay
Using this (set the camera in Legacy Mode with raspi-config):
raspivid -n -w 800 -h 600 -b 1000000 -fps 30 -t 0 -o - | gst-launch-1.0 -v fdsrc ! h264parse ! rtph264pay config-interval=10 pt=96 ! udpsink host=192.168.2.237 port=5600

OK I received the radios
Hookup with power and Ethernet
This is a Transparent Bridge so it basically transport whatever ethernet stuff you inject

The transmission delay is 300msec , so if we substract the 200 millisec from the camera/display system (shown above) , the Over the Air delay is 100msec

Here is a picture

I used the TBS Crossfire Micro dipole antenna.

Next, Range Test… in snowy winter here in Québec. :wink:

what did you have to do to the bare modules to get them operational? was it just wiring or was there any configuration?

Just connect 12V and Ethernet to the JST 1.25mm connector

For reference
No crossover = TX+ on TX+ and so on.

30$ for 100-200ms for let’s say 500m, that is quite interesting.

There is amovlab on discuss that is also selling a fully ingrated solution for this but that is more expensive.

Did you have a chane to make any range test?

thanks

I am planning to do it this week

really looking forward to it, i am really tempted to buy 2 raspberry hats to test.
