There's mountains near Steve's WISP footprint?

You have that the other way around. A horn would be ideal in a mountain area.

I Totally agree with josh. 

They have a specific purpose so if you can deploy within those parameters they 
are great. 

Unfortunately our area isn’t conducive to that type of deployment because of 
terrain. In the mountains you need antennas with a wider vertical beam because 
your towers are on mtn peaks and some clients are same height as the tower and 
other clients are on the valley floor. It’s hard to use a spot beam to cover 
all that. 

In the Midwest or other flat areas I could see them being useful to spot beam 
the population centers.

They are great for stuff like 30/40Mhz wide, gps sync, put 4-6 on a pole in a 
subdivision or on a tower leg kinda thing. 

If anybody thought they were for something else (ie long range), they didn't 
read the data sheets. 

Lightweight, low size, low wind load, perfectly circular pattern - great spot 
beams. Good F/B ratio.

I recently did a couple of tests with RF horns. I was hoping for a lot 
and was disappointed. I was hoping that they could be colocated 
closer than regular sectors that I use and the crosstalk signal levels 
were just about the same as the shielded sectors. As far as the 
signals at the CPE's they were pretty good but not amazingly better for 
as small as the target area got reduced to.
