How To Mount Mikrotik LDF 5

Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:09 pm

Hello, I'm starting my small WISP with my target CPE as mikrotik ldf 5.
I want to use only that for both short and long range distances since the cost of the device with a dish is cheaper than the price of general CPE.
My problem is mounting the ldf 5 on clients poles and towers.
Since the Dish's angle and elevation faces upwards it makes it difficult to get the right angle panning it up and down without the dish being blocked by the metalic support.
Will be glad if pictures can be shared on how it was mounted and at which angle the signals are much better.
Attached is an image on how the dish reflects the signal from the LDF 5 feed.
Thanks

For ground links it's often easier to mount the dish upside down.
Searching for "inverted dish wifi" on google images will give you some good results.
One example with diagrams and good read: https://www.ab9il.net/wlan-projects/wifi3.html
