Hi guys,

Here in Quintana (Argentina) we are planning a 40Km link to connect
three community networks in the region to the nearest Internet Exchange
in Cordoba City.
Our longest link so far is 16Km and it works very well (40Mbps) using
AirGrid M5 27dbi.

For this occasion we are planning to use Ubiquiti Rocket M5 + 34dbi
dishes. There is clear LOS between both ends; link calculation seems
fine but I'd like to ask about your experience with this kind of long
shot high performance links.

Any recommendations based on real-world deployments?
Are you using these Rocket routers for long links?
