VHF Radio Frequencies
The two major data radio modem bands used worldwide are the Ultra High Frequency (UHF) band and the Very High Frequency (VHF) band. Raveon provides data radio modems in both the VHF and UHF bands.
VHF and UHF each have advantages and disadvantages to them. There is no one best band. VHF antenna are typically larger that UHF, but in many instances, the communication range will be greater with a VHF system. UHF has a shorter wave length, so the antennas are more compact and less obtrusive.
UHF signals may penetrate foliage better, and will reflect off of rock and other obstructions very well. UHF will also work indoors somewhat better than VHF and it penetrates buildings better. In open areas, most users will find that VHF data radios communicate farther than UHF data radios. But in heavily wooded areas, or rough terrain, UHF data radios may work better.
