Re: Campground 1/4 Mile Coverage help

said by SipSizzurp:

An 802.11G laptop transmitting at it's lowest link rate will link to a Nano Station at about a 1/2 mile and will receive about 8 Mbps from the Nano Station under those circumstances.

"Those circumstances" being clear LOS and clear spectrum, like out in a corn field, not in the middle of a campground with hundreds of other mobile devices polluting the spectrum.

It must be getting close to Halloween, that conjured up an image of a large axe weilding murderer dressed up like a scarecrow running through the corn field and may I add causing RF interference with that axe.

This is correct. I had almost edited my OP to make this clarification, but since I had already said ;

Get a Nanostation M2 and do some testing. With "Some trees and buildings" involved it is nearly impossible to give any solid advice. You need to see for yourself what they will do where you need them.

I figured I had said enough for one post until the OP responded with some interest. I wanted him to at least know what was possible since he seemed so incredulated about the 1/4 mile link with a pair of LOCOs.
