I've done a 1/4 mile easy at Zuma Beach with the Boxx and the external antenna array. Depends on your budget mostly.

Microlite has really long range(Nebtek has them for rent) and Noodles ( (818) 406-7102
) has one that will easily cover that range, but $$$. Both have delay. Don't think the Boxx or HP will be 1/2 mile reliant.

Have a look at this test done in LA . On the receiver end they have a 20 x 20 5 way antenna which helps in the extended range .I don't know how hires the Boxx in LA .

Thank you all for the replies and assistance. We have rented the Microlite HD from Nebtek in LA. It promises the 1/2 mile range... Hopefully it will live up to its claim. I will report back on how the shoot goes on Monday. This BTW is not an inexpensive rental at $750 a day. Delay not a big deal as producers/ writers are going to be a long way off and Just need to see everything. For the record.. I own a BOXX (it is away on rental however ) and I just purchased a Teradek Bolt. I didn't feel either was the right tool for this job and had production get what I think is the right tool.
Louis thanks for the video, I didn't think my BOXX would go that far, awesome... unfortunately that would still be to short for Monday's shoot. Doc and Alan thanks for the reminder as I had completely forgotten about Nebtek and Microlite in xmitter debates over the last year.
I will report my findings on Monday.

How did it go with the Microlite?

I use the Transvideo Titan HD, and it performs really well. Havent tested how far, but the image is rock solid in any environment I have used it in.

Gaylen( and all interested),
Microlite was solid for distances, terrain was a bit of a challenge as there were turns in our hills we were not expecting (production slightly changed location.) I was impressed with the ease of use on the Microlite, and the weight was very low. There is a small delay which when dealing over long distance was not an issue, but would potentially be a challenge in close set use. All in all, a good solution to my needs for the shoot ( long distance to village, traveling on grip trix )
Thanks everyone at Nebtek and Gaylen for all the assistance. Thanks Doc for bringing it to my attention!! great product!
