Somewhere in the archives of this list, I posted a spreadsheet designed for very high reliability in northern climates. WRAP boards consume about 1A @12V. That's 24AH per day. Depending on your location, your WORST month's solar power capability will range from minimal to around 4 hours

Our stategy has been to use high quality AP sector antennas with really good F/B ratio. Cutting out noise is equivellent to adding gain. Not that I'm against hipower cards, I'm just saying so many people forget about F/B radio in their antenna choices and that Noise is accumulative from 360

If I put my money behind the bet I'd say the RFLinx amps would likely be the winner. We've used their B/G OEM amp successfully. I do not have any real specs to back that opinion up, as I rarely ever use an AMP on the AP side, as it prevents using a high gain sector antenna based on FCC

'Cloaking' is the term used by the StarOS to refer to the functionality that allows for changing channel width from 20Mhz to 10Mhz or 5Mhz. According to http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?p=30343sid=d1e41e16905346726003d1f2 b84d7ea2 Mikrotik also has this functionality as of version 2.9.12
