Looks interesting. Have you tested how narrow the beam-width is? But if you are just looking for a couple of hundred meters range, it shouldn't be necessary with directional antennas at all

I picked up 100 5 volts regulators on ebay for I believe it was 10 bucks, I only needed a couple at the time. I would like the newer switching regulators but I am a strong believer in using what one has on-hand.
100 regulators? Should be enough for at least a couple of weeks

Super fast shipping, good price and the seller also does one with a breakout board

Looks pretty much like the same module from flytron - if so, I have been very satisfied with the performance.
