802.11N used as a Bridge -- What antenna spacing for Yagis?

We want to do a 1km P2P Bridge using 1252 APs and 3 Yagi antennas.

Q: Can I stack the Yagis vertically on a single pole, or should they be side by side horizontally on 3 separate poles?

Q: What antenna spacing? I was going to use only about 3 wavelengths -- about 15 inches.

Thanks,

Tim

Yes you can, and, It looks good to me, three lambda should be good at the normal power levels.

Good Luck

Just keep in mind that bridging 1252's is not officially supported by Cisco (see link below when I asked).

You should also verify that you can use Yagi's on a 1252. The last time I checked, Cisco did list any Yagi's for the 1252 (which, from an FCC perspecive, I think means you can't use ANY Yagi antenna with a 1252).
