800 ft ptp link

Hello all,

Need recommendations for a small PTP link. Speed is not important, just needs to work (cheaply, this is for an end user)

800 ft outdoor open flat terrrain, no obstructions whatsoever.

If it can be done with equipment indoors? It needs to go thru one wall on both ends, one of them is metal however.

Thank you!

Just use nanobridge m22 or m25.

If you mean to shoot the wireless through the walls, I think you're snookered.

Metal is easier to drill through (for the wire) than brick, block, stone, or concrete.

Maybe use a pair of NBM5 for the link.

I've done just what you're talking about with Nano 900M Loco's, through multiple buildings in a dowtown environment, no less. If 900 is an option in that area, you might try it. In my experience, it seems to be very forgiving of solid obstructions at that short of a distance.

I'd just install a pair of NSM5s and call it a day.

Could even do this in the DFS bands with those NSM5 or NB5s

If it were me.....I would mount the gear outside! I've been messing with wireless for over 10 years now and try to expose myself to it as little as possible. I really don't like the idea of stewing in wifi radiation if I can avoid it, and in this case it seems avoidable!

What, you don't want that third eye to grow in? I'm still working on mine.

I've found that the third arm coming out of my forehead has been very helpful...

I've been growing extra hairs on my upper lip.

A pair of NSM5s should do the trick, though I would drill the cable through the metal wall and stick the unit outside if possible.

Nanobridge M22

Your going to need to use probably the lowest transmit power assuming they are outside, aimed right and have line of sight. if you don't want to cause signal overload.
