Thread-topic: [CRTech] Extended WiFi link

And just remember you can get Ubiquity 900 Mhz  links for about same money , uses same antennas as you use for your STL 950 link .

A duplexer is  needed if you use your STL TX, RX equipment.  Mine passes about 14 mhz down, 4 mhz up  with 2  PR 950 antennas , 9003 STL system thru antenna.

Hop is about 3 miles.

I don't think that is the antenna that you want.  IIRC, that is a dual pol dish with odd connectors to match UBNT's AirFiber products.  I typically use single pol panels or grid reflectors with Type-N connectors when using Bullets but screw the Bullet directly to that connector.  Coax could certainly be substituted between.

An example:


How long is your hop?  I have been using UBNT Nanobridges (all-in-one dish/radio) and similar for 5+ mile clear path network hops with very good reliability.  Having the radio on the ground does make sense but the coax loss at 5.8ghz may be an issue.

I typically order this stuff from Flytec Computers.  Mostly because they are in FL and I usually get stuff in 2 days UPS ground but they are very knowledgeable about the products they sell and have saved me from ordering incompatible devices on more than one occasion.  IE, antenna ordered had a goofy reverse TNC connector and the radio ordered had a Type-N...

Digging up an old thread... ;) We're once again looking into this system.

I like the idea of keeping the RF system where it's easily maintained! Are these the right parts?
