Re: Problems RB433 UAH

If you are getting a good signal like you said, I'd consider taking the box apart and build from the beginning, start with just 1 radio and one sector. If you get a great signal from one sector only and network speed is fast then build it up slowly, one change at a time. Obviously that only helps if...

Re: rb532 oddity

I've seen this before here, thought it was the same thread . . .

http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37006

That other thread doesn't have a solution either. Any way to merge the two together?

Re: Monitor Voltage

Yes, the MMCX connecter is better.

Omni with nfemale -> n-male to n-male -> n-female pigtail to MMCX -> MMCX connector on radio -> Winbox antenna mode -> B.

This will give you the best results. Hope that really helps.

Re: Monitor Voltage

Yes I have several very similar setups, though I do not use the UAH, just 433 with or without AH. The problem with the valemount radios is this, they have 2 connectors, MMCX and ufl. On the physical card you will see that printed on the board by the MMCX is the word 'main' and by the ufl 'aux'. This...

Re: Monitor Voltage

I use that Valemount radio as well. I'm assuming here that the radio is plugged in via the MMCX cable (the big one). For some reason the ports are mislabeled. In winbox try switching (under the wireless page on the radio) the antenna mode to antenna b.

Re: Monitor Voltage

If your board is fully functional, why change the power supply? The RB433's in my experience should be run at a higher voltage, this is because what you really need is watts into the device, as watts are a factor of volts multiplied by amps, a 12v 1a power supply is half the power of a 24v 1a power ...

Missed that step. We run POE's with 2.5mm power cable from one end to the other, so we don't suffer from voltage drop, we also run POE surge protectors, and ground the boards this way, so we couldn't do it, but it may work for you eben!

I've googled quickly for you but can't find one that fits what you are after, but I'm sure they exist. 2. Run your batteries in series and have a system voltage of 48v (this is what we do)...
