I had a call the other day from someone at the Congressional Budget Office. It *looks* like there is a move afoot to expand USF to broadband. I believe this would only be a good thing for the market. Out here the telco gets $109 per month per phone line. And they require a phone line for DSL

What are the advantages of using both polarities for the same signal in a good LOS environment? There isn't. But having one on standby means, that when someone deploys on that channel/pol, in seconds you can switch polarities, to get past it. Broadcasting on DualPols, does have benefits in

Antenna has to be certified as long as the radio, and then together they both have to be certified. You could have a certified radio and antenna but if they aren't certified to be used together then its illegal. Kurt Fankhauser WAVELINC 114 S. Walnut St. Bucyrus, OH 44820 419-562-6405
