Re: old hardware market

If the device works, most likely it is fine to buy used, as it will work for a long time. We still see a lot of RB133 and RB532 in operation, which were released/made more than 10 years ago.

Kārli, your points make me think you did not read my post at all. You just said you want ALL changes, now you say you don't want all changes. Long term releases don't come after each other, they are "elected" to be long term, from the "Stable" branch.

Re: [Help needed] Mikrotik Ltap Mini GPS not working

Any chance you added or removed the antenna, while the device was running? Shorting the connector central pin and connector outside, can cause GPS chip to be damaged. This is why you only should add/remove antenna while there is no power (GPS has an active 3V antenna). Software wise, I think it look...

Don't use frequencies that are used by radars, if you can.

Just use your own country name, and you will see which frequencies have "dfs" next to them.
