I'm looking at a solution for a boat to pickup / connect to on sure AP's.
Obvious solution is single Omni on something like Mikrotik or Ubiquiti.
But - those are single band.
Better would be a dual band solution.
Even better would be using directional antenna's (180 or 120)
So here is where it get's interesting.
If you have a 3x3 device, can you run 3 x 120 antenna's to get 360 coverage with improved range, rather than a single Omni.
And secondly - there doesn't seem to be much explanation on the newer AC and AX about 2.4 chains. Much of the longer range is on 2.4, but I'm not clear if there are dual or triple chain on both 5.8 and 2.4. It seems most of the triple chain stuff is 5.8.
Any clarity on this? Have I missed something?
