V89 Stationary Relay - Quebec / Canada

Hello there,

I am thinking about buying a goTenna Mesh kit for hunting in Quebec, nearby the Manouane Lake.
At some point, my partners and I will be about 30 km apart from each other.
I am thus wondering whether the V89 Stationary Relay will do the work for us, if we are using goTenna mesh to communicate - i.e. is 500 miles range really possible (see picture)? It juste seems too good to be true! :flushed:

Thanks in advance for replying!

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in goTenna Mesh products.
Node Map is used for users to self report if they wish, . Mobile nodes show general locations where meshers regularly use their devices. Powered stationary relay nodes show exact locations where meshers have set up fixed, powered-on devices (e.g. connected to outlets, solar, etc. ) This must have been a typo, relay nodes do extend your range, however not up to 500 miles.

In general, you can expect up to 4 mi (6.4 km) point-to-point range in open environments such as plains, desert, beach-side, etc. Expect up to 0.5 mi (0.8 km) point-to-point range in congested areas such as cities, mountains, ravines, thick forests, etc.

Thanks
Naz
