AIR-ANT2506 ... Can it be mounted up-side-down?

Just wondering if I'd lose any signal strength if I was to mount the AIR-ANT2506 in the up-side-down position.

The reason I want to do this is that currently we have an AIR-ANT2506 mounted to the side of an outdoor enclosure, where it sits raised above the enclosure. But I feel that the enclosure is mounted a bit too high, so I thought about mounting the antenna in the 'hanging' position from the enclosure to lower the position of the antenna.

Can the AIR-ANT2506 be mounted in this way without any consequence?

Hi David,

The 2506 can be mounted in an inverted position but you do run the risk of it filling up with water if exposed to moisture;

Hope this helps!

Thanks Rob,

I think I'll try getting the AP enclosure lowered rather than mount the antenna inverted.
