20 radios at the same time

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi all. My name is Mark DiMonte and I need some help in anticipating problems that might arrise when operating 20 different ground frequencies simultaneously during a robotics competition . I am the technical dirrector for Skills Canada Ontario Falcon Knight Robotics competition. We currently have 20 teams registered to compete in a task oriented challenge that may see all 20 robots running either in competition, or in the pits. The posted immage is a list of the frequencies that will be in opperation. Does anybody know any calculations that I may do in order to forcast any seccond or third order interferance that may arrise. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Your best bet would be to run an impound for any robots not competing. Considering all radio's are on different frequencies you should be OK but why tempt fate.

RC cars will race 6 to 8 cars at once. It is rare there are any problems with interference.

Impounding the radio's will ensure the competitors get the most fair shake when it is their turn. Each group will alos endure the same handicap in the pits where they can not test repairs until their radio is released from the impound.

I would be interested to know how your event goes.
