These are products that are limited to transmitting distances of a about
50 feet or less. The antennas have no directivity and they operate in the
unlicensed ISM bands, which restrict radiation power to <= 1mw.
The correct solution is a licensed band, directed wave, point-to-point
radio link--which would probably be priced out of the budget.
