Re: METAL 5SHPN x2 with Mimo Dish vs Rocket M5 for 75 KM Lin

I support laertbarka's idea. Metal has better RF shielding than cheap plastic Groove. If the dual pol dish has N connectors, then coax cables or pigtails can be avoided. When one Metal fails, then the other will keep the connection alive. I don't know how this would work in such distance, but it's w...

You have to buy a u.fl to sma-rp pigtail or mmcx to N pigtail to attach another antenna. To use a a sma connector you have to drill a hole. Without drilling holes you can use such awkward workaround like visible on the attached picture:
