If you're outside Europe then 900 Mhz should have more range but the
downside is a slower data rate. Basically the higher the frequency the
more prone it is to noise and attenuation due to obsticals and

As far as I understand Paparazzi does not require huge bandwidths so
I'd go for 900/868 depending on where you are.
