Just a little mad. Antennas and cable do fail. That's something you need to consider in your fault tolerance. We've seen stuff fail from pac wireless, gabriel, superpass, etc.. The whole price range. We've also seen MTI ones fail when struck by lightning. As far as sectors go, there is often

Have you ever used diplexers at each end of a coax run? I am liking that idea for a couple repeater sites. One LMR 900 would be half the price of two. All the repeater sites have antennae at different frequencies. Mike At 09:30 PM 10/29/2009, Marlon wrote: How high is the tower this is all

I think the concept of combining functionality into single units and fault tolerant redundancy are mutually exclusive. I believe more people have had problems with more complicated installs than more simple ones vs. failed components on simple installs. I think a well planned combination of

How high is the tower this is all on? If you run the calcs for line loss, even at 5 gig, up to 100' of coax isn't horrible much of the time. I'm putting more and more radios back on the ground these days. LMR 600 or 900 can pay for it's self in a climb or two. laters, marlon - Original
