I'm brand new to the forums.
recently bought a small meter reader which transmits
temperature and meter info on 433 Mhz. The meter
reader is located in a utility room; and I would
like to put the receiver in another room.
Between the rooms, is concrete block. Ie nothing
propagates out of the ulitity room. I think (I can't
really tell) there is about 4 m between the rooms
and walls. The walls are 15 cm thick; pour concrete
There is a 1 inch conduit between
the rooms; I was thinking about sticking some coax
in there, and put on some 400 Mhz or so antennas
on each end, building sort of a passive relay system.
Would that work?
At the moment there
is telephone wire in the conduit.. is there any
way I could use that as an antenna?
have any idea of the transmitters power or the receivers
The manufactors states about
100 M line of site operation if that helps.
