I wish someone made a frequency converter to go from 5.8 to 24 GHz. There is 250 khz of open unlicensed space at that frequency which would be ideal for backhaul use in places where we are tight in 5.8. I would be using a paif of those on a sale today if they were available. John Scrivner

I have some RF KLInx 2.4 to 900MHz frequency converters that have been on operation for about 6 years now. They work fine altthough they will soon be coming out and replaced with a new product. One place I thought frequency converters would be nice is on towers that are too tall to run cable

Actually what you are describing is very similar to what they did. They used an intermediate frequency to feed between the base and the tower. The difference is that there are likely more frequency conversions in your scenario than the Alvarion / Breezecom setup. In their systems there is only one

Most radios have some sort of intermediate frequency; the chips that process the data don't work at 5.8ghz, etc... Satellite systems work much the same way; your 12ghz dish/directtv/fta doesn't work on an rg6 cable at that frequency. The Alvarion BA-II tower gear has the downconverter
