PTP550 connectorized

Hi Guys,

I just want to know if it is possible to use the PTP550 connectorized without external antenna?


How do you plan on using it? If you’re just bench testing two radios and using RF jumpers that will work fine. You might need to add some inline attenuators if the signal is too hot. You probably shouldn’t run them for prolonged periods without some sort of load (antenna or attenuator) or else you might damage them.


Hi @Eric_Ozrelic ,

Thank you very much for your response, does that mean that we need to utilize the RF in order for it to work?

I will use it as a bridge for only 1 kilometer distance.

Do you have a recommended antenna that is compatible with ptp550?


For that application you must use an antenna. I’d buy a 1’ or 2’ dish from KP Performance Antennas.
