Because its only 1/3rd mile thru the forest a friend suggested trying 2.4GHz first, since those wireless bridges are cheap. $250 later and I have my answer: nope.
So I’ve switched to 900MHz. Purchased a set of 450s (https://www.cambiumnetworks.com/products/backhaul/ptp-450-900-mhz/) and went with the vendor’s recommendation of trying to overcome attenuation with power via Ubiquiti’s higher gain Yagis (the YP’s have even higher gain but they sell in packs of 5).
First bit of fun: finding product documentation! Not on the webpage above nor on any vendor’s webpage. Weird. But I found the Quick Start Guide and the User Manual. Neither does a good job of showing how to connect the Yagi to the radio. Which port is A and which is B? Ubiquiti labels their cables as V and H, and the User Manual says A goes to V and B to H.
Next bit of fun: mounting the Cambium to the Ubiquiti - I’ll try to hack something up. But while searching for advice I found that I’d better waterproof the N connectors - nobody had mentioned that yet. The vendor did say to use some silicone to seal the ethernet cable to radio housing as they have had corroded jacks before.
Once I know which port is A and B I can hook up the antenna and power up the radio for configuration and bench testing. I had to put at least 5ft between the 2.4GHz antennas; how much space between the 900MHzs?
