Re: WIKI NEEDS: Installation Pictures!!

Just lit up a water tower today, here are a few photos of the enclosure. Don't laugh, my budget is not very robust!


Thight budet ? That setup looks really nice ! At the beginning, we were so thight budget wise that we used tool boxes which we insulated our selves and drilled holes in them as we could not afford enclosures :icon_rolleyes:

Dont forget to press kudos.jpg if this post was helpful or of great interest !

Depending on where you are located you might have heat issues. I use 24x24x14 hoffman hinged enclosures and I had to add (2) vent fans with a thermostat.

Do you insulate the enclosure? Also, do you mind sharing the model/part number of the fan you used?


What gear is inside your enclosures? I am sure you are aware, most consumer grade switches are only rated for 40 degrees Celsius. However, the Mikrotik RB493G router is rated for 65 degrees Celsius, and has no fan! The RB1200 is rated for 70 degrees Celsius, also has no fan...

Your setup is very close to mine. It looks like we ordered the same enclosure from Pioneer Breaker and I have the web power switch as you do with a simple battery backup and a routerboard as well. I might stick with RB750UP's though to get rid of the POE injectors and clean my box up a bit. Yours is very neat

Airsync GPS with ABAB frequencies on the 5GHz band?

Please keep in mind that GPS is still a work in progress. You can get it to work but there is a performance hit with AirSync. There are many useful posts on here on playing with the AirSync values to get them to work.
The beauties of RF Armor:

  • The ability to place sectors close together without self interference both in band, out of band, and out of channel.
  • Greatly increase the ability to do proper channel planning.
  • 30% to 50% performance increase (without AirSync)

Personally I would not use AirSync unless I have no other option as there are 5 non over lapping 20 MHz wide channels which allows for up to four sectors and a back haul.
The kits to make the GPS work better but if you read around the forums there is a lot of tinkering to do and there "is" a performance hit!
The kits are great but they are not a magic bullet that can fix a software feature still in development.
If you intend to do this make sure you back haul is also shielded.

Can't believe the NB passed the analysis, no way those girders are strong enough to hold it in place :manhappy:

I'd look at something to protect the rocket and jumpers. RFArmor makes a good box. WaveGuard boxes from ISPSupplies is good too.

Re: WIKI NEEDS: Installation Pictures!!

The RF armor equipment in on its way, we are fairly new to UBNT equipment and we have had nothing but success with the rf-afmor, i will post an after pic when we put the shielding in place. With the frost we had no issues with the rocket which is acting as a Back haul. The 2 AP's had lots of low signal and connection issues.:icon_lol:

Re: WIKI NEEDS: Installation Pictures!!

Not quite finished when the pictures were taken but almost there (please ignore the mess), need to put sides and insulation on the "battery shed" still.

20' redwood tilt-over mast, 2.4 omni+rocket and 5.8 rocket backhaul to a site 10.5 miles away. Simple solar power.
