What is critical to chose this "range distance" is:
- tx power
- packet size
- transmission mode
All of the above will change a lot the value of your range distance
while the exact psr ratio (95 vs 98 vs 99 vs 80) is not going to change
the range distance very much because the psr drop is always very sudden
For example, here is the psr vs distance for 6mbs with the lowest tx
power and two different packet sizes.
