As the title, can the base and rover communicate in urban areas or do they need a clear view between the two? Basically, will buildings and other big objects break the communication?
 
Thanks,

– With MR, LR and XLR radios rf-line-of-sight is required: https://www.ardusimple.com/visual-vs-rf-line-of-sight-what-is-the-difference/
– If you can’t guarantee line-of-sight it’s better to use IP communication via internet.
