motorola 430 series 5.7GHz OFDM

Wants to know the distances between and 5.7 or 5.4 OFDM AP and SM with reflector,without reflector and with a RF Lens.

We have our maximum distance set to eleven miles to get the customer that is farthest away from a tower. We don’t use the LENS much since it doesn’t seem to make a very big difference. We do use a dish when the signal is low, and it makes a difference between serving the customer and not serving the customer.

In most cases interference or LoS is the main problem for us, not distance.

Tip: don’t try to have a LoS across a airport - the tower radio activity and weather radar can generate a lot of interference.
