    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Hi all,

I'm using an NRF24L01 PA LNA (http://www.elecfreaks.com/wiki/index...ith_PA_and_LNA) as my transceiver module for a project of mine that requires a good data rate over a long range (with line of sight). Today I had a quick look at the regulations for use of the 2.4 Ghz band in Europe (using the ETSI 300 440 part 1 standard) and noticed that for short range devices (SRDs) there is a maximum transmitter power limit of 10mw. Having looked at the NRF24L01 PA LNA power and seen it's rated at 20 dBm maximum (100mw), would this suggest that this module is not allowed to be used at full power in Europe?
