    i'd like to ask your opinions on this project that i'm trying to do. I want to use wireless MCU like this and interface it with a serial output camera. The intention is to link two of these to demo a wireless sensor network.

    The operating frequency of these MCUs that are available to me is 916MHz. I'm not good at radios. Do you think it is safe to use it at outdoor conditions and near overhead power lines that are 50/60Hz? Would there be any interference and such?

    Sorry if i've posted at the wrong section..

    A receiver at any frequency may become desensitized by strong electro-magnetic fields in it's vicinity. This makes it impossible for the receiver to receive low level signals in the band of interest.
