XBee 868 MHz Range


I bought a pair of this model (although I have not yet received).

I have doubts about its range of coverage.

I bought 2 antennas like this.


You think that this antenna is compatible with this model XBee? , this is the datasheet of the antenna:

Do you think I can get a communication between them in a range of 1 km?

I have no obstacles between them. You might think that I will try in the Kalahari Desert. But without trees.



Providing you have enough height, sure.

2 meters, at most.

I can not use high gain antennas.

I hope to try tomorrow with XBee 868.

Thank you

I would strongly look at the article located at http://knowledge.digi.com/articles/Knowledge_Base_Article/Maximizing-range/?q=maximizing+range&l=en_US&fs=Search&pn=1. Otherwise you are going to be disappointment.
