Hello, It's very warm in Serbia and my RB4011iGS+ blocked twice in 3 days. This time I put him in Librenms and last temp before crash was 66C. It was maybe higher, but 4011 didn't report it.

Today I went to my supplier (Netiks, Belgrade, Serbia) and we tested few brand new pieces. All of them had similar problems. Bad b...

Re: RB4011 Metal temperature is really hot

you need to buy hardware for the installation, not just for the specs. If you are working in hot environments with no natural airflow / air-con then you will need active cooling, so buy a model with active cooling (RB1100AHx4 would be my suggestion). There is more to product selection then just spe...

You can't just make a random aluminum dish and expect it to be better just because of material. There are calibrations done, specifically for the original grid. Antenna design is a precise science, not a form of metallurgy.

Yes, You have to wait a little (a lot) for link to establish. Be patient. First, connect devices in lab conditions, and after that take them to the field. Be sure to use 64800 or 66000.

As You can see, both links are working on 66.000! On the central location. antennas are almost back to back, and it looks like it doesn't bother them :) I tried shorter link at 64ghz, but connection was not stable. I assume that is misalignment related.
