I'm going to try this and there is no reason it should not work really well It *should work great. Stock TX and Solo. My ground station will consist of * Good battery power for a day * 2 Ubiquity or similar 2.4GHz Wifi POE devices setup as AP and client with directional antennas. * wired network switch. Like these: Ubiquiti Networks - NanoStation® M *in wifi mode* Or: ENH202 Outdoor Wireless Bridge | EnGenius I'll hook them back to back over wired ethernet or hook them into a wired switch. One device will be setup as a client bridge and associated/connected to the solo tx. The other will be setup as an access point and use the same SSID as the TX. So there will be TWO access points that the solo can connect to- the solo TX and the bridged secondary AP. Secondary AP can be put on another RF channel or kept on the same. Client bridge device can be MAC locked so it will only connect to the Solo TX and not connect to the other AP When the solo gets out of range of the Solo TX with stock antennas it will still be able to connect to (if it is not already connected to) the ground station access point with the big directional antenna which is ethernet bridged/connected to the client bridge device which is connected to the the Solo TX wirelessly. Simple!!!! but also a bit confusing. LOL.
