Welcome

Here you will find notes on wifi experimentation I have conducted, my main goal is to do some long distance wifi, but I’m not worried about records.

2.4 GHz

Pros:

  • lots of gear available
  • ~7dB better than 5 GHz in free space

Cons:

  • lots of interference

5 GHz

Pros:

  • less interference
  • more flexibility for bandwidths
  • smaller antennas

Cons:

  • some areas have 5 GHz weather RADAR
  • less low cost equipment
