I didn't know this one yet. It's good reading, thanks !

Ah, I think we misunderstood each other there. What I said it was "dead",
I meant that it doesn't fit the kind of use that we'd be looking for,
i.e., a broad range of applications, probably many of them Internet-like.

Of course, in a world consisting mainly of low duty cycle sensors, 433
MHz all of a sudden looks much nicer.

I didn't have time to play with the antenna last week, but this week
will be better.
