|Ok first a small disclaimer...I know basically nothing at all given the subject. I may not even be in the right place. Now that I have shown my ignorance here is what I am wanting to do.
Is it possible to modify a digital trail camera to transmit the pictures stored on the memory card to a 'base station'? I'm sure it is but the commercial models are insanely expensive (1000-2000 USD each) and the other models require a monthly cellular data contract (the area I am in doesn't even get service). So can I modify a router or something to make my own long range network? Long range being 1-2 miles maximum. The area is relatively flat and I can put up any towers or whatever may be required.
Thanks in advance and I'm not at all asking exactly how to do it. I just wanna know if it's possible, worth pursuing, and cost effective.
