What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?

Recently I’ve been getting into controlling RC vehicles such as planes and trucks by using what’s called FPV (First Person View) where you have a camera installed in the vehicle with a wireless video downlink to a ground station. [Link] While researching what video frequency to use for the video link I came across this website that would actually help out ¬†anyone doing outdoor deployments. From this website you can enter in an address and see what towers are registered and unregistered in the area. The registered towers also then provide you with the frequencies they are operating in. I dug around my city’s registered towers and found all the public safety band, city wide mesh, a few microwave links, and others. This confirmed my decision to use 900MHz for the video link and was backed up by using Metageek’s Wi-Spy 900x.

This should be on everyone’s bookmark list that does outdoor deployments:
