    Hi Folks.

    I have purchased the Cayenne kit and would like to have better penetrating power.

    Could you recommend some LNA/PA modules?

    Kody,

    The Cayenne kit already incorporates an LNA into the design, what are you trying to penetrate and at what range?

    Most LNAs/PAs spec'd for the bandwidth of ~1-6 GHz will theoretically work. Once thing to note is the high peak-to-average power ratio (aka crest factor) of a Gaussian pulse, so the PA needs to have plenty of headroom in terms of the output power compression point.

    What's your form-factor, have you tried a higher gain antenna?

    We may have a few more custom suggestions if you want to contact us directly via support@flatearthinc.com.
