    The ones I'm using aren't WiFi either, they are specific data modules (using the 433MHz range) - the DR818 appears to be for making your own 'walkie talkie' type radio, not for data purposes.

    Assuming you're wanting simple data transfer, the modules I'm using are absolutely trivial to use - whereas the DR818 looks to be pretty difficult, and may not be legal for data transmissions anyway?.

    Hi N,
    Yes, it was one of your contributers who was using a ESP8266, that confused me. Reading a whole thread in second, with mild dyslexia causes this type of thing:arghh:
    The DRA818 is versatile, and can transmit data or voice, so yes it can be used for a walky talky.

    Nigel , Just wondering what range you managed with the various FU settings, I have not completed both ends (PIC's) of my HC-12 remote controller yet .

    I've never got around to trying it :D

    They work all round my house and garden, which is all I'm asking of them.

    hi G,
    Let me know what settings/range you intend using and I will set up a couple of HC12's, do some comparative trials.
