signal strength issue and one side might broken

Sat Jan 25, 2014 6:34 pm

Hello,

i have the following reading on a station:
    status: connected-to-ess
                    band: 5ghz-n
               frequency: 5260MHz
       wireless-protocol: nv2
                 tx-rate: 60.0Mbps
                 rx-rate: 60.0Mbps
                    ssid: XXXXXX
                   bssid: D4:CA:6D:D3:
              radio-name: D4CA6DD31
         signal-strength: -67dBm
     signal-strength-ch0: -67dBm
     signal-strength-ch1: -82dBm
      tx-signal-strength: -73dBm
  tx-signal-strength-ch0: -84dBm
  tx-signal-strength-ch1: -73dBm
             noise-floor: -112dBm
         signal-to-noise: 45dB
                  tx-ccq: 86%
                  rx-ccq: 99%
   authenticated-clients: 1
        current-distance: 12
                wds-link: no
                  bridge: yes
the singnal on ch0 and ch1 is different on both ends. How to identify what side of the link is broken, or are both side broken?

thanks

Is it LOS? Polarisations might be influenced different by obstacles.

I had this problem and ended up swapping out the RouterBoard and the antenna cables. I suspect the problem in my case was water ingress too - can't be too paranoid about water!
