Hello KyWiFi, As someone who has many towers with 900 omni's ( and many years supporting them), this combo ( SR9 plus mikrotik/starOS/whatever) eliminates the desire to ever deploy an omni again. IMHO.
Some of our most rural areas are so polluted in 900mhz, an omni just doesn't cut it. Mikrotik now needs GPS polling......
