    Sorry it took so long to respond to this message. Thanks for the info. Currently we are buying a 10 meg connection from Time Warner. We do not have Comcast in this area of Ohio. With about 120 customers on our system, we are still providing most people a 1.5-2.5 Mbps connection both directions. I think we are going to have to get another 10 Megs from TW once we get another 50 customers or so on line.

    interference does sound like the most likely suspect.

    That is a good question for which I also need to find a good answer.

    We do not currently have a S-A that will go to 2.4ghz or 5.8ghz. But could also use one. I’d probably start by searching here:


    Over the years we've seen lots of once usable links deteriorate into being unusable. And while SkyPilot looks great on paper, I'm not very enthusiastic about their real-world performance.

    Last month I bought a UBNT powerstation and put SP software on it, it works, but no better than a standard SP CPE ?!?! I was bummed!

    Separate subject: Who do you purchase bandwidth from? And do you have Comcast in your area?

    Craig here (Mikes Brother). We now have about 100 CPE's up and running. We have an area of town that all of a sudden we are having problems about the same time every night. I believe it is high time that we get a Spectrum Analyzer or something like a Cisco® Spectrum Expert Wi-Fi. Can you recommend something that works well that won't break the bank. Thanks,
    P.S. We have gone through the 1st 100 CPE's that we bought when we were being led astray by Joe. They worked okay, but we have been experimenting with Ubiquity Nano2's believing they were a little more powerful. At this point I'm not too impressed, but again, maybe I've got some interference issues I'm not seeing.

    Mark, I know you are busy. Can you give me some quick feedback on these radios?
    I may be interested in buying your Skypilot equipment. Thanks, Mike
