Radio packet loss

We are experiencing some problems with the packet reception on the hedge side. Basically, what we are observing is that, from time to time, we stop receiving position messages from the hedge, hence our robot loses position

Do you have any idea what might be happening?

- How far is modem from the beacons? It must not be too close - not closer than 1-2m. If you have to keep it close, then keep antenna on the modem, but remove on the close beacon. But keep the beacon to the modem very close then
- Check RSSI. on beacons and modems. It must not be more than -20dBm. You will lose packets, because the radio signal is too strong. Starting from -80dBm or lower you may experience losses of packets because the signal is too weak
