This is just my way of thinking but I would suggest that beam forming could be compared to holding a stick and pointing it to some target; if the stick is short and the target is nearby (less than 5m) it's easy to be accurate and the margin of error is small. But what if the stick was 5miles long and the target was 5miles away, imagine the margin of error and the difficulty in maintaining position on a moving target, and the chances of direct line of sight would surely be very low. Not to mention the Inverse Square Law. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
