Hello. Recently I purchased three units of the XBee-PRO 900HP RPSMA (XBP9B-DMST-012 Brazil) and I am waiting for the antennas (6 dbi) to perform some tests.
Now, I am interested in purchasing the developer kit that comes with three wire antenna units.
In an urban area not very dense (many houses, with some buildings up to 12 m high), could someone estimate the average range I can get using the 6 dbi antenna version and the wire antenna?
I am afraid to buy the kit and after don’t be able to use the modules with wire antennas due the short range. My plan is to create a mesh network with approximately 20 units, one of which will be connected to my computer to get data from all the others. The unit connected to my computer will be about 5 m high.
Thanks for any help.
