But im still wait for new LGH5 with 802.11ac, gigabit ethernet and industrial grade aluminium.
That will make it more expensive, but the whole point of this LHG5 device is that it's cheap.

Re: QRT-5

I do recognize that QRT-5 will probably be an excellent device with good antenna, high throughput, powerful CPU, gigabit ether port and good build quality. But, it has about 50% higher price than custom made CPE with RB911 + 23dBi single polarization antenna. We need something like that (single pola...

It will have too low fade margin with 19dBi antennas. Take a look at specs http://i.mt.lv/routerboard/files/R52n-M.pdf
R52n-M has only 13dBm output power at max. modulation.
For that range you should chose higher gain antennas... 23dBi at both ends is a minimum IMO.
