Radio modems encode, transmit, receive and decode serial data using radio waves. They connect to serial ports on devices such as video cameras and data acquisition systems, and send signals to and receive signals from other radio modems. Although these modems do not require wires, their uses may be limited by uneven terrain, inadequate antenna heights, and antenna feeder cable loss. In these situations, a radio modem repeater may be required.
Radio modems transmit serial data as radio waves in a specific frequency according to a defined radio technique. This digital data is encoded prior to transmission, and then decoded prior to receipt. Once decoded, the serial data is provided to the connected device.
