We had 2 obstructed PtP links with no LOS (trees), throughput was at 4/0,3 Mbits with a lot of drops when distance is auto.
Automatically calculated distance seems close to true but when I have increased distance from 2,3 miles to 2,8 miles, things improved a lot. now there's 9/0.8 Mbits with almost no drops.
However, increasing it further makes things worse.
This trick did improve throughput in all observed cases with obstructed clients.
Am I thinking right that it has something to do with reflections with a little delay?
Why AC radios doesn't have this setting to adjust a distance, so we could tune it to a different scenarios?

I have tested the throughput on one link in different modes. This is a very weak link, Airgrid M2 to Nanobeam M2, a small forest with snow on the trees in the way (LOS is obstructed with top of the trees). An actual distance is ~2.2km. There's one customer.
Aggregation is 16/16000, AirMax enabled, rates on auto. Signals is -64 on one side and -70 on another.
Below is the list of the speed test results on different modes.
