I need help with IP address
I've moved you to a new thread, which is what I meant that you need to do. Guys should help from here.
Will edit your first post to make it clear what you are saying there as well. In future if you have a new topic start a new topic.
Are you connected to a site already as you need that before getting IPs?
Might want to update your node location as well...unless you really do live on the pier
Hi there I am staying on a yacht in houtbay harbour
where is the equipment going to be mounted?
The m5 400 is mounted on the mast
Do a scan and post the results here
Hi @krugerjozef, majority of the CTwug sites run Mikrotik equipment. Ubiquiti radios cannot connect to Mikrotik radios. Not sure if that side of the world are running any Ubiquiti sectors.
Book the test kit and run a scan, then take it from there.
Hout Bay is all Ubiquiti equipment
Suppose you would need stay wires to maintain decent signal should the wind come up? Also, mooring might be tricky with all the slight shakes on the water?
No the signal stay about the same but when the south easter blows the signal drop to 1/4 %
signal is bad , did you perhaps pick up Aragon on the scan ?
Have you contacted Kush via email wind to find out if theres space ?
You will be using a directional antenna so not a good idea to connect to a sector from a boat.
What will the problem be if I use a m5 400 the signal stays the same but only if the wind blows
The yacht will sway, causing mis-alignment. Depending on the dish you use, 1 degree left/right and up/down could make you lose connection.
Use an sxt on full TX power (Just joking, never do this unless you want babies with 3 heads getting born in a 360deg radius and 2km from the boat)
Then what must I use
