Frequency RangeDescriptionView Specs
902-928 MHz
License Free Band – USA, Canada, Mexico, Central, South and Latin Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and China

The 900 MHz band is license-free for use in many countries around the world. At lower frequencies, the radio signals can travel farther and penetrate through the walls and vegetation, providing better NrLOS operation. The 900 MHz band provides an excellent alternative to the crowded 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band for long-range links.

TVWS Bands
TVWS (TV White Space) Bands – Global

TV Whitespace (TVWS) is the inactive or unused space found between channels actively used in the UHF and VHF spectrum. TVWS frequency spans from 470 MHz – 790 MHz. Currently, the regulators in various countries are actively working on releasing these valuable frequency bands. Doodle Labs can configure the Smart Radio for such projects.
