While I like your grocery store comparison, Mark, would electric power and telephone be a better comparison. Groceries have always been a must have. At one time neither electricity nor telephone service fell in that category. They were luxuries. Now, however, they are must haves. And

I agree Mark's post was extremely well said, and insightful. To me, it's like Yellowstone wildlife management. Once it became a national park the park management (people) said we need to manage the wildlife. They did this, then 10 years later they did that, then 10 years later they did

I'm needing to do a 14-mile link at 5.8GHz. I will have to use a 15-or-so flat panel antenna due to building owner's asthetics requirements. On this 8-story building, I'll mount to the side of the masonry, then I'll have about 25 feet of LMR-400 from the antenna to a weatherproof enclosure

use an XR5 (ubiquity) card as radios, with mikrotik, a 24 dbi panel on the aesthetic end from pac wireless. 3' dish on the other end. You'll have more than enough margin. Don't ever ever ever use an amp on anything. you only amplify your problems. -Original Message- From: [EMAIL

Yeppers, that's about what I was thinking. It really depends on the rec. signal that you need though. Also, how about putting the antenna inside something that doesn't look like an antenna? marlon - Original Message - From: Mark Koskenmaki [EMAIL PROTECTED] To: WISPA General List
