By using the globally available 2.4GHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) devices band, the GeoRadio eliminates the need for licensing.
Rather than using a fixed channel, the radio’s spread spectrum technology enables signals to hop over a wide range of frequencies. The sending and receiving radios change frequencies in unison, creating reliable communications over a spread of frequencies and reducing the vulnerability to interference, jamming, and multipath fading. The Trimble GeoRadio 2.4GHz uses the frequency range from 2401MHz to 2470MHz.
The system also provides a long-range radio link that reaches up to 1200m.
