I was thinking earlier today to try using a Rocket5M instead of a Bullet,
use a SMA to N pigtail and see how that works out for us, just using one
side of the Mimo.  I'd hate to get too many Bullets as substitutes and then
want to use the full MIMO later down the road.  I have enough of the older
bullets sitting in the bucket doing nothing as it is.  The Rockets come with
the PoE power supply already and they have the reset on the injector.....
Might be a better way to go at least for us, the Rockets we can certainly
use later on a sector or a Rocket Dish and they are in stock at some
distributors right now.  I think I'll play with that later tonight.  I'm
hoping they can be used with only one antenna......  Does anyone know?

We just got some rocket5m stock. We needed 2, but ordered 6 because we 
never know where/when more might be in stock. It's guys like us that 
cause inventory to fluctuate on the demand side. I do hope they improve 
in their supply. Until then, the gear is cheap enough that we'll 
continue to order more than we have immediate need for.

I'm pretty much done buying their regular nanostations, the pattern is 
just not defined enough and the pick up lots of interference in all but 
the most rural of applications. I think MT behaves better for 802.11 in 
interference situations. I think the rocket 5m stuff is super nice though.
We've only used it with dishes, and it rocks at that as long as you 
tweek the distance setting, have the right firmware, etc...
