18" pigtails don't cut with large dishes. Further, the loss on crap coax
at 5.8Ghz is quite high even with short lengths. From a shear cost
perspective there is little reason to use crap coax for short pigtails.
Without cost being a major factor all the benefits of using quality coax
start piling up.

The whole idea is you mount the radio on the tower, and use a small
(18 inch) pigtail. :)

There are other connectors more robust than RP-SMA; it doesn't have
to be N. RP-SMA is just too small to use with decent coax.
