Yes, there are places where the horns make sense, and are going to work much better than anything else, but you have to know where to use them and where not to use them - they aren't the right fit for the majority of WISP deployments, but they are a very good product. When I say that the only one with high enough gain is the 30 degree, I mean for my needs. I can certainly see where the lower gain models would make sense in micropop type situations (and lower gain might even be more desirable, in some cases).
I agree on the RF Elements Carrier class sectors - I've been very happy with those.
