The $10/mo for web access with Sprint ONLY applies to the use on the phone. When you plug in the data cable, and use it as a modem, its like $0.30/kb. Learning that lesson cost me. The unlimited phone-as-a-modem or data card rate is around $39/mo. Does anyone know if there are

I talked to Mike for quite a while the other day. I think this idea warrants some discussion. On the one hand, the idea that we can use the cheap, arguably underutilized 6 gig band for licensed ptmp links has some draw for me. It's also an idea that the FCC has already hinted at a year or

[WISPA] Radio / antenna combo

I am trying to understand if it is better to high gain antenna / lower power radio or low gain antenna / higher power radio. Either combo can get you to max EIRP but it seems the lower gain antenna give you better coverage through greater vertical beam width. Am I thinking right? Mark McElvy

The lower the gain antenna (less narrow - or wider beam width) the more broad the path it makes. The tighter (higher gain) the beam width of the antenna the more condensed it is or less area it will cover as it is more focused to achieve the extra gain in dbi. This is one of those things that
