Well, I'm deploying SR9's with MikroTik next week.  Can't beat the RB112's for price.  Put them in the Pac-wireless NEMA boxes for clients with yagis and hoping to see the 900 MHz Rootennas soon....

We will be using RB532A's for our AP's.  I'm planning on using Netstream with polling for our setup.

Also considering cavity filters on the AP's.

After testing, we are going H-pol only on 900 MHz.  Better range and lower noise floor...  900 MHz H-pol omnis are $800+!!

Waiting on a friend to send me some 900 MHz panels for testing....  Soon, I hope....

Looking at a trick to use two 60deg Hpol panels together, but have to wait for them to get here....

Hello all,


I’m planning on purchasing some test equipment designed around the SR9 900 MHz equipment.  I’m debating between MikroTik and WRAP boards at the moment and have found an outdoor enclosure that should work fine.  However, the big question is what antennas to use for both the AP and the CPE.


I found some sites that offer 900 MHz Omni’s but the prices are CRAZY!  Into the $300 range!  As for a client side it seems to be a little more realistic of around $20 up to the hundreds of dollars depending on the type needed.  Am I crazy or am I destined to pay about $300 for an Omni-directional antenna!?


Also, if anybody has any EXACT configurations they would like to recommend for my first SR9 AP and CPE setup please feel free to post the details of you recommended configurations!  Thanks!
