Hi all, I have a 24km link that I want to implement the 400c radios. Now as per link planner using a 3ft or 4ft antenna renders good results but I am having trouble with what 3ft or 4ft antennas to go with. Radiowave antennas are to expensive for this link so looking for something of decent quality without breaking the bank.
I don’t have a 400c but I assume they have some way to pole mount it so worst case you would need some longer rpsma pigtails. Then again, I don’t have one of those dishes on hand so it is possible the pigtails are built into the dish… I don’t believe that is the case with any 5Ghz rocket dishes though you might want to make sure (I think the 2.4Ghz rocket dishes have the pigtails built into the dish so you can’t just get longer pigtails).
Something else to keep in mind the specs on the dish say 4.9-5.8ghz so 6Ghz so 5.9 - 6Ghz maybe not an option.
We have 400c mounted with 2’ and 3’ RocketDishes, and yes… had to home-make it. It wasn’t too tough though, and they are working fine. I’ll see if I have pics my phone, and I’ll upload them later what I did.
