When choosing your microwave antenna, make sure you select the antenna that uses the exact frequency band that your radios are specified for. Many bands utilize distinct divisions within that band. The band that is typically called the 6 GHz band is a prime example. The usable frequencies for public use in the 6 GHz band actually contain three separate frequency bands: 5.6-5.8 GHz for spread spectrum, 5.925-6.425 GHz licensed band and the 6.425-7.125 GHz licensed band. It is critical to order the antenna appropriate to the frequency band that the radios actually operate in. Microwave antenna pricing will be based upon the size of the antenna and whether it's a grid, reflector, single or dual polarized, multi-band and a host of other system planning requirements, totaling almost 1,000 models to chose from. When adding the available options, the selection becomes a full catalogue of offerings.
