Not so sure it's that simple. I have 2 separate setups that I'm seeing this problem with so I doubt it's 4 feed horns or radios gone bad at the same time. We're in the UK and unfortunately the RadioWaves support isn't quite as good here as it obviously is over there but I'll give em a go.

I would consider both before jumping off a bridge here.. Tell Radiowaves about your issue and see if you can send the feedhorns back for testing. They come right out and may be a quick test to see whats up. -B- Paul Hendry wrote: >Bob, I hear what you're saying and have been through the figures a few times >and even tried turning the power of the radio cards down to 1dB output >(still unable to run both links simultaneously) but this doesn't explain why >others are able to use the same radio cards with similar antennas with >little to no problems. > >Charles, unfortunately Canopy isn't a financially viable solution at >present.
