MB/s and km2 of coverage to lowest possible production cost! • To sell Erlangs and MB/s. at a prize that maximizes profit. To build sites is not a mission! .OPERATORS MISSION • To produce Erlangs.

The one to the right has a combination of circuit board and coaxial cables. Which means 2-4 dB of loss for a 2 meter 18 dBi antenna! .ANTENNA – Conventional Feed network To the left. three of the major vendors can be seen. But all three suffers from a loss of one to two dB per meter of antenna length.

upper -3 dB (15 dBi) at -3.5 degrees . We will set the two antennas at a tilt at or near their VBW This will give us for the 21 dBi antenna: Tilt 4 degrees. upper -3 dB (18 dBi) at -2 degrees and lower -3 dB at -6 degrees For the 18 dBi antenna: Tilt 7 degrees.5 degrees and lower at -10.Impact of 4 degrees VBW Towards the horizon If we assume that ”same tilt” means a tilt with the same radiation towards the horizon.
