Driving Tests

The Micro-Trak is in the car and transmits position at regular intervals. A standard rubber-ducky antenna is mounted on the roof. Driving tests are characterized by loosing line of sight very often.

Apparently, the 300mW transmitter has difficulties in getting through, probably because it occasionally transmits over other stations. For next test I'll set the transmission rate up hoping to increase the chances of being picked up.

Range Tests

These tests are aimed at achieving better results than during the driving tests by ensuring that there is line of sight contact between transmitter and receiver, thus trying to increase the range.
