Technical Description

The FGR-115RC supported point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks. It could serve as a field radio/modem connected to a datalogger, as a stand-alone repeater not connected to a datalogger, or as a base station radio/modem connected to a computer.

Freewave's FGR-115RC 1-Watt Spread Spectrum Radio was retired in July 2007.
