Is there a way I can shoot images with my D200 (NEF files) and simultaneously download them onto my laptop without being tethered?
I am planning on shooting an all day (16 hours) sporting event and will be shooting multiple images. My idea is to have someone set up with a laptop at a station near the concession stand while I am out on the sidelines all day taking pictures. I would like to be able to shoot the pictures and have them sent wireless to the computer where I would have someone processing and displaying the images.
Is there some sort of wireless tether for the D200?
The only thing I can think of would be Eye-Fi memory cards, but I don't know how good of a transfer rate they have. But they're WiFi, not cellular so your processing person would need to be nearby, not at a distant office. But in the presence of a wifi signal such as a mobile hotspot, they can upload to a privately accessible site, so then they could be downloaded remotely.
Eye-fi is SD card based. The D200 is CompactFlash.
This issue is one that us sports shooters see all the time. And it's the reason you see cat5 connections in the D4. And why the wireless transmitters have been around for the pro bodies for a long time.
Really the only effective way to do this is to establish a wireless network covering the range you need, tether the camera, and share that storage with the remote user.

My problem with tethering the camera is that I will be shooting a football game and will be moving up and down the sidelines constantly. If there is a wireless transmitter for the D2H or D2X body, I wouldn't mind purchasing one for this purpose in case I can't come up with a solution with my D200.

Probably long discontinued. The D300 replaced the D200 about 5 years ago, after all, and it's a D200 specific item as far as I can see. The extended antenna seems to be advisable for football pitches. Maybe some aftermarket antennas will do the job.
LifeTouch is shooting photos for our church directory with a D200 and a wireless connection to a computer in the same room. I don't know what the wireless adapter is.

Depending on the eye-fi card you are restricted to file type
Does the Eye-Fi Connect X2 card wirelessly upload RAW format photos? No. The Eye-Fi Connect X2 uploads JPEG photos and videos file formats. Need to transfer RAW files wirelessly? The Eye-Fi Pro X2 card is the card for you.
