Re: LHG 60G experience

The LHG 60G pointing to proper direction is impressively imprecise, which is strange with that beam forming and all. The link signal will cut off by only minor adjustments thus these "0.2 degrees left or right" are almost funny. What is the antenna pattern and how that device is using it?
