    OK this is maybe off topic for this board but I'm looking for a way to open my electric gate from 250 meters away. Almost line of site but has some trees to pass going down a mountain. I figured I could either somehow increase the transmitting power of the little transmitter or extend the antenna of the receiver up in the air or bring it closer to where it can receive from where I need to transmit.

    Anyone here know a good way around this problem? Would extending that little wire that you usually see hanging from the units help to receive the signal from the transmitter either by putting it up high in a nearby tree or just running it on the ground to our house which is 250 meters up the mountain from our gate.
