5.8 GHZ video scanning

Post by 2E0LGZ » 27 Mar 2019, 18:30

Anybody had any results scanning around this band? 2.4ghz seems dead now and most commercial stuff such as wireless cams and video senders etc are on 5.8ghz there are some cheap receivers (meant for FPV drones etc) available on ebay

Yup hams are using them for ATV TX/RX I dont think there is much else on maybe the odd Drone.
5665GHz is the freq hams are allowed to use but Drones are higher up.

Lots of info here
