I started this thread with the idea of using my smart phone, not some rig with hi gain antennas, routers and such. I got jacked.
The first post in over nine months and you got jacked. I think he was just giving options since you never got back with anything that worked.

Re: Cheap Target Cam in Your Picket

I finished a similar product, details listed here:
Long range wireless target cam - Long Range Shooting - CouesWhitetail.com Discussion forum

I spent about $200 and it works great and for shorte distances it even works on my phone, or iPad. My laptop with another yagi antenna will work at 1K no problem and it is very portable. The pole was a salvage piece of conduit with holes drilled so I could mount the yagi and the router above the batteries. The build sheet and instructions is in the thread.

Good luck & have fun!

Just what I was looking for! I'll see if the guy at Radio Shack can help me spec this out. Not the kind of thing I can pick up at my hardware store.

Happy holidays!

Re: Cheap Target Cam in Your Picket

Radio Shack will kill you on prices!

They want $40-$50 for one battery alone when they can be had for $10 or less on Amazon. Buy everything on Amazon and you can do it for cheap, the routers are old models that can be had on eBay for cheap.

Connectors, wire, batteries, charger cord, IP Camera go to Amazon
Yagi & Router go to eBay
