I'm looking for a yacht solution to provide interent to the yacht from the marina or local wifi.
The yacht already has a router and wifi onboard.
The yacht currently has 2 COMROD AV55P4 8dBi WLAN antennas on the mast.
Can I use the Rocket M2 or the Rocket "AC version" with the existing COMROD antennas?
Or would the Bullet M2 work with 1 of the existing antennas? I'd prefer to use MIMO since we have 2 antennas.
If the COMROD is incorrect, which antenna would be a good choice. The mast antenna base is about 25 feet above the water.
Thanks for the help.

If you plan on suppling the yacht with an IP, I would stay with the same type radio on the yacht. Someone else may chime in with a better idea but that is what I would do.

Yes, based on the spec sheet you provided.
You will probably need some adapter cables.
The rocket has rp-sma connectors, fyi.
If you google a bit, you should easily find someone who has what you need.

I'll go with the Rocket M2 connected to the 2 COMROD antennas.
The Rocket M2 has RP-SMA connectors and the COMROD has N.
I'll get a cable that fits since the Rocket will be in the mast 4 feet from the antennas.
Thanks for the help
