Kent Urwiller of Prairie Hills Wireless: "A few weeks have gone by and we have started installing customers on a new site. Something pretty amazing I really wanted to share.. Im running 12 RF elements 30 deg horns with 6 Mimosa Networks A5c's. I am able to do a A-B-A-B-A-B configuration without self interference. Pretty dang amazing really. We are seeing around 130-150 Mbps on a 40 MHz channel to each client thanks to 2.3 and C5c. Im using a total of 80 MHz on the tower. Pretty dang efficient if you ask me!
I am currently having a small issue on figuring out the optimum down tilt on the 30deg horns. I have a customer on 30deg sector ePMP1000 with extremely poor signal, we have 5deg of downtilt on the sector to optimize the antenna pattern for customers at lower elevations but this customer is only 100ft lower than the sector. My question is, should we move the antenna up to improve customer signal? And on future deployments should start at 0deg downtilt to help customers at higher elevations?
