Tom, Check out the newer 15 dbi grid from Pac - it's the same grid as the 2.4 parabolic, but with a 900 mhz horn.
It ROCKS in comparison to many other antennas, and I've used 'em all. I'm usin this particular one with Canopy - 12 miles out and -74 through thick trees on the CPE end. 7 jitter!

M2 makes a 900Mhz 17.5 dbi Yagi antenna. We had found that 900 was very particular to placement, even a few inches in one direction or the other can make big differences in link quality. Has anyone used both antenna types for a specific link, to compare the properties of each of the designs. The thought is whether the wider surface area of the parabolic antenna would make it better to survive signal obstruction from swaying trees in forests. The prabolic is a monster at 3 ft dia, s othe Yagi would clearly be a better choice for a roof top chimney install based on cosmetics. But wondering from a performance perspective the comparison.
