D8R-II plus antenna question

Post by Stefanhh » Thu Oct 02, 2014 7:41 pm

Hi guys,

My basic knowledge tells me that one antenna is for receiving date and the other is for sending data back to the tx (telemetry). Is this correct or do the antenna’s function differently? If so, does anyone know which antenna is which?

The reason why is because I would like to replace the receiving antenna with a stronger one. My telemetry doesn’t work yet, so I cant do a signal strength test…

Please help! Thanks!

Both antennas do both sending and receiving.

I have done this before. No issue from my experience.
Slope Soaring, FPV, and pretty much anything 'high tech'
...........if you think it should be in the wiki.. ask me for wiki access, then go add it!
