I can't fit larger than a 2ft solid dish because of wind load, but need more gain. I would expect a 4ft grid to have similar gain to a 3ft solid.

There are large 4ft and 6ft grid antennas on some of the towers that we colocate on also. But they are all for licensed frequency. I pulled the model numbers off them, and called the manufacturer, and they did not make 5.8Ghz versions.

However, I'd argue, why would you need 5.8Ghz grids apposed to smaller solid parabolics of same power? Sure windload, but if up on a tower where you care about windload, you'd also most likely care about the better front to back isolation that a Solid dish provided.

What's your application?

Those are dishes; not grids.

What kind of gain is that gonna have?

Say maybe 40db?

Anyone know where to find such a thing?
