Here a few examples of why an SXTsq without a standard slide mount doesn't work.
Mikrotik can ignore this issue but the result is that I just purchased 20+ used SXT classics off of Ebay and will continue to do so until the SXTsq series has a standard slide mount. If you don't want my business, don't fix it. The fix is ridiculously simple to add the standard slide mount to the back case the SXTsq enclosure. To expect me and I am sure most everyone else that has been using SXTs and similar antennas for the last 10 years to have to keep completely different mounting hardware just for the unique SXTsq when I already have 200+ SXT 'classic' antennas in service is ridiculous.
The image showing an SXT held to a sailboat mast with velcro is actually the majority of our installations. There is no possible way to do the same with an SXTsq without having to add cost by using some extra mounting hardware and clamps. Plus, the slots in the SXTsq case are way too small to run a 1" wide velcro strap though them - but easily done with an SXT classic mount. We frequently need to have positive elevation as well as these antennas are pointing at a 13 story building that is less than 2km away. We accomplish the up elevation tilt with either a gimbal mount or we just attach a piece of cut cork to the lower part of the valley of the standard, fixed SXT 'Y' mount, hold it in place with tape and then velcro the antenna onto the mast with 1" wide velcro strap. Some might find this laughable but these antennas have to be easily removed and re-installed when the boat owner wants to take their boat out to sail and it works at virtually no cost. There is no way to do something similar with an SXTsq without purchasing a special mount.
