Wireless Valve Actuation Anyone?

Doing some file organizing and went to Aquaterr's site to check something and found this new item.

I've seen these before, but what the heck, need a new topic to discuss anyhow.

That is new from the last time I looked. That seems to have some good practical applications. 5 miles. How do they do that without FCC approval. Seems like it could be turned into or a remote added. They have redone their website. I need to look it over again.

I service a vineyard that was just redone. Boy that would have made life easier. Neat.

Only eight zones? So, what you daisy chain them if necessary?

96 zones max. Don't know if you can daisy chain the VAT's or not.
