Poor signal strength with 350 bridges

I have a point-to-point link with 2 350 bridges 10miles apart. I use two directional antennas for the link. The bridges were set to a data rate of 2mbps. The links worked very well for about 6 months. Of recent I started to get signal loss until I changed the data rate to 1mbps before the signal came back. I am now afraid this may repeat itself.

Kindly help.

Hi ,

I assume you must have you link budget calculator and have antenna at proper height .

Use Antenna Alignment and Link test to do antenna alignment and to get

clean channel .

Possible some interference issue also . Jump to another channel and see if it helps

Re: Poor signal strength with 350 bridges

go to 350 bridge non-root bridge:

setup-network nodes-radio - hardware

data rate enable for -11 - 5.5 - 2 - 1 Mbps

network- dionastge- antenna aligment test

then make your aligment.

Are your outside connections properly sealed with Coaxseal? Water in the cables will causes major problems.
