Hi,

Please advise which gain would be best for our area.

Antenna with 5.8GHz range have various signal gains built into them ranging form 24dB up to 28dB or so, which is best suited for the Benoni/Morehill side (we are alongside the Morehill Benoni Country Club - East of Northmead Mall)?

What would you suggest - alternatively anyone else who might know?

Pending your reply,

Derek

Please try the IRC channel to find out what FREQ would be used, from that it is easier to check out the DB Gain, Please bear in mid that most antenna'a drop no more than 2db over the whole range, and for a LOS link 2DB will not be an issue, only start worrying about gain when u are running a 50+KM link.

This is in my opinion anyway,

Regards Cybert
