... that goes from inside a silk screen printing factory to an adjacent house being used as an office about 75 yards away. It's a radio shack dect 6 expandable phone set with 5 hand sets being used.
Anyone bought a new cordless phone lately? Those 900 Mhz cordless phones you could carry half a block or more away, go visit the neighbor's yard, are becoming rare unless you buy one used. For the same power used the higher the frequency the lower the footprint, which means the newer ones in the 2-6 Gigahertz range have a smaller footprint, and some complain can't even reach to their back fence if they carry the phone out with them. Also no longer clear speech but using DECT, a digital "enhancement" broadcast. The con is less distance, the pro is less eavesdropping possible.
Anyone have one of the 5.8 Ghz cordless phones? I've ordered a double handset (Panasonic) but wondering about others experience with these newer models.
