Proximity RFID Range Extendor

  1. Sep 11, 2008 #1
    Hey guys.....not sure if this is possible but is there a way to extend the range of a proximity RFID Tag. I'm looking for a way to broadcast the tag information so i don't have to walk up to the reader with a proximity tag. I'm trying to find a way to open my apartment gate by driving up to it instead of rolling down the window and scanning it. Any ideas?

    Build a small micropower transmitter that outputs the rfid codes.

    How would you be able to pick out the signal from the RFID card?

    Use an RFID reader to get the card contents.

    Hi,

    Is that a passive or an active tag?
