Are there any additional notes on aligning backhaul units?

First, test the BHM and BHS link on the ground to ensure that the modules are operating properly. This may keep you from having to bring the equipment off the structure after discovering that something is not functioning properly! Canopy also recommends that only qualified antenna installers are used. Second, it is important to align and install backhauls on a clear day. Third, the LOS between the master and slave should meet the 60% Fresnel clearance (minimum requirement). Finally, on long hops it is suggested that maps, path planning software, compass and GPS are used to gather information such as bearing, latitude, longitude etc.
