    dual chain accesspoint + dual chain antenna

    @laithmikrotik- In general terms what you are asking is correct but its half power in dBm. So if the radio is set to 30dBm in TX power then you will get half power to each chain which is -3db less, so 27dBm to each chain not 15dBm. DBs are measured in the log scale and are not measured in the linear scale, so half power is 3db less and 1/4 power is 6db less and so on. Does that make sense? Again, the specific manufacturer (MFG) might do something different, or perhaps their radio might have different capabilities, so you need to ask them, but in general in a MIMO type radio, the power is split between chains.

    dual chain accesspoint + dual chain antenna

    @laithmikrotik- I'm not sure as all MFGs might do some different things. Its best to ask the MFG of the radio you want to use if that is how it works. We don't make the radios, just kick ass antennas to make them sing
  3. @n21roadie- Nothing that supports 3 chains, but if you only want to use 2 chains, then our RouterBoard TwistPort adapter will work.
  4. @n21roadie- On the Asymmetrical Horns there is only one was to mount it. The long side should be vertical like you see in the pictures.
  5. @n21roadie- Not really. It main functions are forming the beams so both the Vertical and Horizontal coverage areas are the same and then reducing back radiation. You may see some improved co-location on top an bottom depending on what sector you compare it to, but for the most part you should use vertical space separation like other sectors. Or you should look at our Horns for the best isolation in all directions.

  7. @caspat- Thanks for the great pics. 5GHz is a line of sight freq. Even with higher gain you should try to never go through anything with signals. With that said, we know the gain of the 90deg Horn is lower then most people would like. We are always working day and night to improve and offer new products.

    Link Calculator - Feedback

    @Mike Simmons- This is a great idea. We will look into it. How do you like the calculator as it is? Do you find it to be accurate and deliver good information?

    UItrahorn PTMP?

    @Tommaso People have started posting results on Facebook and they are good. You can see some here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/188098974946678/permalink/423847944705112/ And here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wisppics/permalink/1913650725335562/ They work perfect just like our smaller Symmetrical Horns. Just more gain and more narrow beam. You need to try it

    Wind Load

    @Arx Web- Sorry for the delay. We are working on adding the new wind load info to our spec sheets. Here is the load info for our 30* Horn: 34N at 160km/h 50N at 200km/h

    Wind Load

    @Arx Web- I don't have that answer for you right now. I will ask internally and get back to you. Probably have an answer Monday.
  12. @Arx Web- Thanks for the post and great question. Most people have done frequency reuse with 30deg Horns, but 40's are perfectly fine. Especially with GPS on Gen2 Rockets. You don't have to be 180deg out like most people want you to think. 180* out is the rule of thumb with Traditional sectors because of their terrible side lobes and as you know Horns are not your regular sector. You can do ABAB channel reuse with 30* Horns w/o issues. Your ABC ABC set up on 40* Horns will work just fine. We look forward to your feedback and reach out if you have other questions. One thing I would add is to communicate with other users because having the correct GPS settings and FW on your radio is very important. I cant really help you with that, but there are many WISPs that can on FaceBook or Radio Forums.
