I´ve heard that it did not pass EIRP test in LHG so thats the reason why it isnt sold and it also wont be soon. It will be nice if someone from staff can confirm that.
The wavelength of 60Ghz compared to 5Ghz is so much smaller it just slips through the holes in the plastic LHG. So as a dish an LHG is not going to work for 60Ghz.
They should come with a LHG that has a metal laminate on the inside. This will work.
They will catch two flies at once. Because people living in snow fall regions can't use the LHG's since snow seems to build up very easy and once on even with a bit of sunlight takes time to melt away.
A metal dish take longer for snow to build up and also gets rid of the snow faster.
Price wise the extra thin metal layer won't make such a big deal, its more the transport...
I work with Ignitenet links and with their big units, that is smaller then a LHG, I can already run links up to 600mtrs and a full Gb aggregated throughput. According their info they even have the same antenna unit with a 2,5Ghz aggregated unit that is capable of getting to 2,5Ghz.
And rain on my 600mtrs link? The link drops indeed in heavy downpours. But that happens here twice a year for 5 mins....... and we have a 5Ghz backup still available...
