    A yard sale find for a Wilson iDEN 50 DB amp, 10 bucks with indoor antenna.

    The iDEN stuff is old news but an omni on my garage at 30 feet may be a tool we can use.

    More later.

    I thought IDEN was around 900 MHz.

    IDEN used the same Cellular Bands, as the latter Cellular Services.... It was just a Different and Older Protocol, that went the way of BetaMax... What you are getting confused on, is the DirecTalk Point to Point Band that these Units could ALSO use. This was a different Band (902-928 Mhz ISM Band) that these units could also communicate on, using the same Hardware, as the Cellular IDEN used, but again, a Different Protocol, and Frequency Band....

    902-928 MHz, unlicensed, operating under FCC Part 15 rules.
    All digital and occupies the entire 902-928 band when transmitting.
    Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS).
    Power output: 890mW (0.890W).

    IDEN might have been the cell phone repeater frequency we tend to use the i355 phone now for walkie talkies.
