No 900MHz comes close.

Our 2.4GHz installs are $199 + special mounting, if needed.  0 month ROI.  In fact, I often make a profit on an install, something that was very rare prior to the NS2 and NS2L.

But, I currently do 900MHz installs for $299 + special mounting, if needed.  RB411, XR9, 13DB yagi.  The ROI is about 1 month.

We used to only be able to offer those users towers starting at $1500.  900MHz can be useful in these locations.

What 900MHz is cost effective? Depending on distance, you can use a
Ubiquiti Loco for $50. Is there anything even close to that in 900?

I think most of us rural guys are on 2.4GHz for last mile and 5.8GHz for
backhaul.

Until recently, 900MHz was not cost effective.

Wow that's a lot of extra work per install!  How high/far are your APs
and what band are you using that needs this extra effort?

We mount to the roof when we have to.  Last resort but there are times
when
it's the only option.

We put down silicone then run the mounting screws though that.  Never
had a
leak.  People have been mounting things on roofs for a very very long
time.

As for brick, we use GOOD plastic anchors and longer screws than they
would
normally have.  None have fallen off yet.  When running the cable I
drill
the anchor holes into the mortar instead of the brick.

I finally broke down and bought a nearly top of the line Bosch hammer
drill.
The DeWalt cordless is nice, but it's not really capable of dealing with

high end brick or concrete.

laters,
marlon

What's so bad about brick?  I would imagine there is lags made for it
(not the mortor).  've always used the saufet ?sp? And gutter to
tuck/hide the cable so there is no damage.

I have a big problem with making holes in a roof. I just don't!

Reason is, any drip or drop then becomes the internet guys fault no


matter


if the roof is 40 years old and missing half the shingles already.


Too


many
people out to "gotcha".  And the ones who ask to see our liability
insurance
before we do anything.......  Red flags!  They turn out to be


nightmares,


we
get permission in writing from those folks for every hole drilled.

Tripods like roof hole making tripods?

I guess I'm just old fashioned using tripods and 10 ft masts. Channel
