I need to place UAP access points in Oberon enclosures (in aluminum stud walls). I am concerned with signal attenuation and antenna orientation. Will the UAP accept an external antenna? I see that the outdoor models do.

Thanks for the quick response. I probably was not clear enough in my post. These access points will be inside. The area they are in has hard gypsum ceilings. The owner has accepted wall mounted enclosures as the only acceptable mounting method (he does not want the access points exposed). I was looking at using the Oberon enclosures with an external antenna. I do not see this as an option for the UAP series. I just wanted to make sure before I go with another solution.

As @LLigetfa said, only the UAP-Outdoor models (or a subset therein) sport external antennas.
The Vanilla UAP, -PRO, and -AC models are self-contained units. Look like an oversized smoke detector when they're mounted.

Unless you were saying UAP and meaning to say UAP Outdoor, I don't know how you can be any clearer. Were you planning to put UAP Outdoor radios inside enclosures?
When I said only certain outdoor models are designed to use external antennas, I meant that NONE of the indoor models are designed to use external antennas.
