I admit that most of you can dance around me in the field of RF.  I'm more of 
an installer and management type.  Today I had a Nano CPE with a -48 dbi signal 
which, as you know, is amazing; it should be it was a block away from the 
tower.  The problem is the customer had long outages and erratic service.  
Aiming away from the tower kept the great connection but still crappy pings.  
Marlon suggested Multipath as a possibility and advised to turn the radio to 
"B" only and reduce the power on the radio. I had heard of Multipath but never 
experienced it. We changed both settings and while the signal stayed at -48dbi 
the time-outs and erratic pings went away.  90% of our system is two or more 
miles from towers, so we never had this problem before. This particular town is 
the only place where the towers are on buildings all within ½ mile of nearly 

It answered a lot of problems for others in town we have been battling supposed 
interference with and I just wanted to publically thank Marlon for exposing me 
to a side of RF I hadn't even thought of.  This is what makes WISPA worth it to
