Recent long distance link setups were not successful. A system for aligning antennas for long distance links is required. There are several possible methods, please discuss which should be the most effective - feasible one.

Visible targets
Medium range links, that a direct visible line of sight - the target can be seen by naked eye/binoculars/telescope.

  • how to align the antenna with the binoculars/telescope
  • can gun sighting mechanism be used?

Invisible targets
Long distance links, where the distance is to great for establishing a visual link/there is a Fresnel zone link...

  • use of compass/GPS
  • use of detailed charts
  • use of Google Earth/Radio link software
  • use of signal generator transmitters and spectrum analyzers (Ubiquiti buiilt in)


  • how long distance WiFi links are done these days
  • what commercial tools exist
  • what can be used for 5.8GHz band
