The BlueBoat uses 2.4 GHz wifi as its default communication method, leverage the MikroTik Groove 52 series radios. The BaseStation uses the “GrooveA” version, which has the ability to act as a wireless access point (AP) for the boat and your laptop or other device. The “Groove” version used on the boat acts as a client connected to the BaseStation.
The radio require an antenna with N-type male connector, which we have available separately. They can be used with directional antennas for longer ranges and better performance.
There are a lot of configuration options available for these radios and it is best to check the MikroTik documentation for any use outside of the default BlueBoat configuration.
