This is not so much of a problem with PMP links but PTP links can be very long (8 to 20 miles in my case) and getting aligned is not easy when you need to have a registered connection before you can align the link. I can already hear the cries of " use the spectrum analyzer" but not wanting to take an expensive windows based tablet up a tower and Android does not work with the jnlp system so basic tools are not usable.
What I suggest is to make eAlign able to be set to receive on a single frequency and display the received signal strength information the same as if there was a registered connection. This works well for satellite transceivers and would make pointing a PTP link faster and easier. The main gain is that there is no registration time, so alignment is much faster.
Maybe a special mode for eAlign to place the receiver in single frequency receive mode?
