Hi, Can anyone provide any real-world experience where they replaced SR5 cards with XR5 cards on a point to point link? We have a 15 mile shot (using MT) that is just _barely_ line of site enough to establish a link. I am just wondering how much increase in signal we would see by switching

You could just toss the cards in there and do a quick configure. $216 for the parts should be easy to show on the books. :) ryan Travis Johnson wrote: Hi, Can anyone provide any real-world experience where they replaced SR5 cards with XR5 cards on a point to point link? We have a 15 mile

What I have seen is not so much an improvement in the receive db reading as in the CCQ. I don't remember how much it changed, but I have a couple of links that were having issues with intermittent drops that went away with the XR5 cards. Travis Johnson wrote: Hi, It's a 2 hour drive (each
