Re: Determine wireless mini-PCI model from within RouterOS

You can use this http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/wireshark/trunk/manuf to determine the brand of the miniPCI card..
it's a Mikrotik card, most likely R52. It might be R5H or R52H, but you can check it from the default card power in the wireless section.

Re: Strange LINK problem with TX signal

Looks like that TX of Site2 is broken (maybe the XR5 power amplifier?). The RX is not related on power output of the card that's why it's still good.
It's not reasonable that RX of site 1 is broken, so i'd go directly to site2 and change the radio (the antenna looks fine)

If you don't have a big budget, you may also consider to use the old RB600As + the 816 expansion..
6 of them and you have 108 isolated ports.
It will cost around 1100€
If you can't find the RB600, you can ask around some distributors, they should have still some on stock.
