Re: [WISPA] 900MHz Omni and gain

Hello Brian, No more then 8db in my playbook anymore. And horz. if at all possible. Sectors on 900 is the best way to go too. I got an Antel 11db with downtilt that I would sell if you really want a vertical omni. Heavy duty antenna. Barry Tuesday, November 7, 2006, 8:20:28 AM, you wrote: BR

2006-10-16 Thread Barry at Mutual Data
Hello KyWiFi, As someone who has many towers with 900 omni's ( and many years supporting them), this combo ( SR9 plus mikrotik/starOS/whatever) eliminates the desire to ever deploy an omni again. IMHO. Some of our most rural areas are so polluted in 900mhz, an omni just doesn't cut it.
