    Hey guys, I spent a very hot and humid afternoon Sunday trying to keep in contact with my phantom at distances that on other days worked fine. Is this expected for very humid atmosphere?

    Humidity will definitely attenuate your signal. Humidity is tiny water droplets suspended in the air, like fog. As the wave passes through humid air, the water drops scatter and partially absorb the energy of the wave. Rain, fog and humidity will all negatively impact your range.
