Long range wireless target cam
Posted July 12 2012 - 01:07 PM
I used an old linksys router along with a cheap IP camera and a yagi antenna so I can view the target on my laptop or on my phone. Set up was not that complicated and can be done via the camera viewer software or your browser.
It was pretty cheap as I had an old router so only bought the antenna (x2), camera, and batteries. The batteries can be had from Amazon for less the $10 a piece and will last pretty much all day if fully charged. I aranged all of it on a salvaged pc of conduit as you can see in the pics. Cost would be $200-$250 to set up, does not include the targets.
This eliminates the mirage problems that start to show up around 400 yds and you can record on your laptop to pinpoint hits and misses.
Let me know if anyone wants more details.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

The batteries you need will be 12V, ~ 1A (mine were 1.2A) camera and router have the same pwr requirements (2 for $18)
The Yagi antennas are from eBay, I used the ones inside a tube so they don't get wrecked in the field or in the truck (about $40 per)
Router Linksys WRT54G (used one is arounf $30)
Camera is TP-Link TL-SC3171 (I paid $90 for mine)
