can this configuration work?

Sun Nov 18, 2007 10:24 pm

I have just bought a Mikrotik RB 133c with 600MW Card to transmit on 5.8GHz to another Mikrotik RB 532 base station with another 600MW Card on a point to point connection.

The distance is 11KM and the antenna I bought are 30dBi 5.8Ghz Grid antenna for both end.

My friend are saying that the power is too much, that it may affect the radios. Can I return the equipment?

Yes, the power is too much for the distance. Return the radios and get R52 instead. Alternatively, you can use the 600mw radios but set the TX power to 18dBm.

Depending on the line of sight - you could do 11km with 17dBm (65mW) + 24 dBi antennas, in some cases you may require 27dBi antennas - so I'd agree 600mW + 30dBi is a bit loud...

600MW are to much, I will recommend you try with 2 antenna RB 522.
