Not permitted under international radio regulations, most limit to +20dBm (100mW).

How about..... Return the feature of an external antenna connection from the openSPOT1? Allow users the capability to increase their range by connecting an external gain antenna to the OS4 etc. Also the ability to operate on either 144-148/430-450 MHz. That would give us better "ears" and as for the higher TX, a user could use the OS4 to excite a small amplifier out to the external antenna to give it more output.

The openSPOT3 is designed to be portable, you can bring it in your pocket (and use your phone's shared internet connection, or any available Wi-Fi network).

I vote for an external antenna option.
