I have had the exact same problem with the CPQs and like you said, swapping them with a CPE-200 works fine. All I did to fix the problem was back the TX power down on the CPQ's. Some CPQ's I have that are close in and connecting in the -40's or -50's wouldn't even start passing traffic until I set

You'll find some advice in the MT forum, try downgrading to 2.9.x and lower the hardware retries down to 4-7. I've done this resulting in improved stability. steve - Marlon K. Schafer wrote: I'm having trouble with the cpq and mt with xr2 cards. There's a problem that they aren't figuring out

Hi Mac. I think I paid a little over $500 a couple of years ago. I really wish their UMPC based spectrum analyser was a little less - I just can't justify the cost on it ($4,500 with a Samsung Q1) - but the power meter has paid for itself in headache relief. Brad H On Fri, Mar 7, 2008 at

Hi Mac. If the RB-333 is about the same size as the RB-600, I use the 14 x 12. It's a little tight - I vent them myself so I can change the orientation - the RB would probably fit better the way they have them vented though. http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/nema_enclosures.php -- Brad H (Jenco
