though the theoretical signal should be at -50db I cant make an alignment that reaches less that -73db. I attribute this due to the relative low altitude that the signal travels over the sea. Furthermore the link sometimes degrades bellow -88db signal strength.
In order to do what I can to stabilize the link I am using the following configuration on both ends:
Has anyone tried to make a long distance link over water to give me a few pointers? For example:band=5ghz-a/n basic-rates-a/g=6Mbps,9Mbps,12Mbps,18Mbps,24Mbps disabled=no frequency=\
5240 frequency-mode=superchannel ht-ampdu-priorities=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 ht-supported-mcs=\
mcs-0,mcs-1,mcs-2,mcs-3,mcs-4,mcs-5,mcs-6,mcs-7,mcs-8,mcs-9,mcs-10,mcs-11,mcs-12,mcs-13,mcs-14,mcs-15 l2mtu=2290 mode=station-bridge \
name=R52Hn rate-set=configured scan-list=5240 ssid=BB.xhaos-tom supported-rates-a/g=6Mbps,9Mbps,12Mbps,18Mbps,24Mbps wireless-protocol=\
Should I use vertical or horizontal polarization? (I have tried both but don't notice any difference)
Should I reduce the channel bandwidth to stabilize the link? (In fact I have tried 5, 10, 20 and 40MHz bandwidth but I don't see any changes in signal strength or in CCQ)
WIND (program equivalent to RadioMobile) shows clean LoS with 1st and 2nd order fresnel zones clean.
O really would appreciate any pointers as I am new to this kind of thing.
Thank you all for your time.
