Boron - xenon - range

I did a simple field test of connectivity between a boron and a xenon.

The boron was in a fixed, elevated, position in a rural area. The xenon was mobile and battery powered.

The maximum distance that the two would consistently connect was about 200 to 220 feet.

I did get a couple random connects at 300 feet but did not work consistently.

These were out of the box, connected in the particle dashboard and the battery powered in the field. No external antennas. Just as they come.

I was hoping for at least 500 feet consistent.

Anyone getting better range? How can the range be improved? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

You can add Argon antennas to the Bluetooth BT UFL connector ut the use external antenna command is currently not working on the Xenons yet from what I hear.
