I have customers beyond 20 miles... Last night I installed someone, and couldn't get thier CPE to associate until I called someone and had the distance limit upped to 28 miles on the AP. Anyway, I plotted it in RadioMobile and it's 22.7 miles according to RM.
The customer is here behind the trees. http://neofast.net/users/mark/pics/wp/apviews/cafferkey.jpg And ap is ... I THINK... in the mountains near where this is marked. It's kinda hard to tell from this view, and I couldn't find a better picture. But, those sites are visible to each other. http://neofast.net/users/mark/pics/wp/apviews/lewispeak.jpg These pictures are taken from one of my AP's. I have picked up a useable signal level at 29.5 miles from one of my AP's while I was doing a site survey. No, I have no amps, and all but one AP is a CM9, with the last holdout being an old Sapphire card, which is going to changed out real soon. All my CPE has 18 db grids. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ neofast.net - fast internet for North East Oregon and South East Washington email me at mark at neofast dot net 541-969-8200 Direct commercial inquiries to purchasing at neofast dot net ----- Original Message ----- From: "Barry at Mutual Data" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "WISPA General List" <email@example.com> Sent: Wednesday, September 20, 2006 12:16 PM Subject: Re: [WISPA] A little help with Mikrotik > Hello Mark, > > 15 miles!!!!!!
