Is it safe to put two 60GHz Dishes together?

Mon Apr 22, 2019 9:48 pm

Hi. I have two Point-to-Point air links made with Wireless Wire Dish (W60G). Both links are in automatic frequency. These two links have a common node. And there are two dishes, each pointing to its respective couple. One is 500 meters far, and the other is 1000 meters far. Both have clean sight line.

As you can see, I did put the two dishes in the same pole/post. And they are very close each other.


My question is: Is it dangerous to be the two very close each other?. are there some danger of interference?,, is there some minimum distance of spacing for in between them? should be the two links to work on different channels?, should I let them in automatic frequency?


Thanks in advance

General rule of thumb is any two separate antennae operating in similar frequency range, is to be separated at least by 2 times the wavelength. For 60GHz lamda is just 5mm, no worries there.

I'm too lazy to calculate the Frensel zones but you should be fairly OK there too.
