Hi Felix,


Thanks for your email.


Xbee868 stops sending messages if the duty cycle exceeds a threshold. I don't know their exact formula. If the data rate is too low, it stops sending after 45minutes and starts again after 5-10 minutes. If data rate is high, it stops after 8-10 minutes.


We will work on synchonizing the telemetry/telecommand messages.


Does anybody know a long range serial modem and low cost cofdm video transmitter?

Hi Refik,

that is a good question, unfortunately I don't know of a good way to solve this (like how to assign different time slots to up/down link).

You are not the first to have this problem, so any ideas on how to solve this would be welcome.

On a side note: IIRC the 868MHz modems only have a 10% duty cycle and there are times where the xbee will not send messages to respect that.

But since I never had a 868MHz xbee, I'm not quite sure how they handle this....


Cheers, Felix

We are using Xbee 868 modem. The downlink and uplink shares the same frequency. Sometimes, we send a command from GCS but it does not make any difference and it dissappears. I think that it corrupts with the telemetry messages coming from airframe.


Is it possible to synchronize the telemetry and telecommand messages for Xbee? Telemetry messages may be send upon periodical request from GCS.  There may be different timeslots for telecommand and telemetry.


Does anybody have any suggestion for that?


Do you recommend a better serial modem other than Xbee?
