Thanks Mac and Travis... This does sound like a no-brainer. How about a 12-mile link with 5.3 or 5.8?

I do use their dishes where I have a large enough tower, water tower or a
roof. I will tell ya though - - the 29dbi grids are mighty fine, much less
expensive than a solid dish, wind load is no comparison as well as the ease
of mounting. If you are leasing tower space - - the grid is a no brainer
unless you have to have the extra db that comes with a dish.

Are we preferring their grids to dishes?

Mark,

 I have several 8 mile 5.3GHz links (YMMV) using PacWireless 26dbi grids,
MT & CM9's. IMHO you can't go wrong using the PacWireless antennas. I have
built a wireless network that covers 12% of Louisiana utilizing their
antennas exclusively for my BH. Well - I do have several of the Trango
dual
polarity ext's.

I have usually used Trango backhauls, so I have not had to worry about 5
GHz

antennas and what to choose.  Now I'm going to try a MikroTik backhaul
with
a CM9.  Currently, I've got two applications:

1. 2-mile link that I can perhaps use 5.3GHz over.

2. 8-mile link that I'll go 5.8GHz over.

What antennas have you used to accomplish links such as these...

Also, kI have heard that the output power of the CM9 in a MikroTik can be
adjusted.  Experience?
