Assuming all other variables are the same (modulation type, transmit duty cycle, receive sensitivity, data rate, etc), what is the relationship of RF frequency, range, and power consumption? The dataset is any frequency between 300MHz and 5Ghz, and assume low data rate (<50kbps).
Is there a frequency range that is superior to other ranges in terms of range and power consumption?
I assume lower might be a little better.
What RF frequency is best for maximum range (assuming same transmit power is used)? I also assume lower might be better here to a degree (i.e. comparing 5 Ghz to 2.4 Ghz), but I am not certain.
Is there data available that shows how well certain frequencies propagate through different materials (trees, buildings, etc)?
