situation is like ... we will be having array of some sensors deployed in a region of say ... 20m x 20m (only rough idea ... actual geometry will be different, but distance between two neighbouring sensors will not be more than 20m). This sensors should communicate with central monitoring station and send gathered data to it. Environment will be normal outdoor environment which will include : Trees, lamp-posts, buildings, traffic , etc.

So in such environment how much range can be obtained ? IF BER is tolerable is 1% will there be any improvement in range ? Can receiver sensitivity be increased from -80dBm(at 0.1% BER) to say ... -100dBm (at 0.1 % BER ) by using external RF amplifier ?
