If the versions of mikrotik are different enough that you don't know if you have API access, the expect script is going to be a bit of work as well, the 2.8 to 2.9 to 3.x to 4.x to 5.x command structures and output changed enough to be a royal pain. If the majority are post 3.x I would write

I definitely want 120*. Beyond that, assuming we're talking about 2.4, then 60* isn't doable. There just isn't the spectrum and without GPS it isn't going to work. 90* is going to be tough but could probably work with vertical separation. Josh Luthman Office: 937-552-2340 Direct: 937-552-2343
