did somebody around ever tried the 5.8GHz technology for video transmission:

The *"5.8 GHz* All Weather 8-Channel User Selectable Receiver with External 29dB Gain Parabolic Antenna." would be around $600, the "5.8GHz Micro 8-Channel Video Transmitter board." about $150 .

There are lots of modem choices on the wiki, and anything that works as a transparent serial line will work as well. Be careful with the high power modems as they will cause interference with everything. We've had great results with the little radiotronix 868 but less success with the similar 900Mhz version. You can also experiment with 900Mhz video. It should work better in theory but unfortunately, most of the newer (better) hardware is 2.4G. sells some of the 900MHz Lawmate stuff. Also check,, and any other vendors you can find that sell Lawmate or Misumi wireless video parts. Avoid RF-Links unless you have more money than you know what to do with.

Hi Martin,

Thanks! RS India has them too, but they need to ship from the UK. Costs a bomb too :)

I'm going to the hardware store for a quality pair of crimpers.

I have some of the XBee pro modules, but it's a shame I cant use them because our video is on 2.4ghz too. Lots of physical space and weight would be saved if I could use the Xbee pro modules instead of the Xtend modules. But are there any light weight 900mhz Video TX's available? I know rf-links has them, but they won't ship here and require a MOQ of USD 5000! If I could get my hands on a light weight 900mhz video TX, then I could use the XBee Pro modules! Also, are there any smaller 900mhz radio modems available? I think even the EU standard of 868Mhz will do here.
