Hi Folks,
I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post but I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a way to extend the range of the signal being sent by my son's continuous glucose monitor over the MICS band (freq 402-405MHz). The skin adhered transmitter he wears requires the hand-held receiver to be within 1.5M and has an output of 25uW (300 kHz b/w with a data rate of 8192 bits/sec). Can an RF repeater be devised to extend the range to 25 meters? If so, what component would one need?

Thanks!
Seb.

I am not an RF expert but have you considered extending the antennas. I have seen that do amazing things for other RF devices.
