Did anything ever come of the discussions regarding an Airfiber 5x radio shield box that would fit the back of the AF‑5G30-S45 dish antenna?

what radio do you plan to use with it? If an RM5 you'll need something to cover it.
If an AC or AF radio or even Mimosa or something, you're good to go.

Actually I have found that the AFX Radios work much better with the DIsh Kit and Rocket Cover if airMAX radios are mounted close by but I have no cover for that dish, sorry.

Better to use the legacy dish and UDK25X "in my opinion"

I had an M5 airMAX radios 15 feet away that knocked my AF5X link off line without the shield kits that were pointed 90 degrees off of each other and the airMAX radios had shield kits already. Put AF5X on a legacy Dish with UDK25X problem solved.

The channels were right up against each other but not over lapping.

I was always afraid AF5X would kill airMAX but it seems AF5X gets knocked off easy my Legacy M5 radios

Put it this way, I redesigned the UDK25X and UDK5X because I saw a need just like before.

Interesting.. Haven't seen that but I don't really have any airmax radios really close to much.
All our AF5X links are in UNII-1 except one which is in DFS and probably has a few NBM5 links and some RM5 sectors close by. The tower has like 12 radios on it total.

I load up my towers, you know this.

Anyway this tower has AT LEAST 15 airMAX M5 radios and I have airMAX radios "right" above and below AF5X frequency and physical location is very close, less than 15 feet

I miss a cover for the AF-xX radios on the new UBNT dishes. @Sirhc, any plan of making radio only cover ?

It gives a huge difference with the cover, even though the AF-5X radio is very good shielded. You still have the pigtails bleeding.
On a heavy loaded site, you can see a difference. Normally running AirView from a radio behind a non-shielded AF-5X will certainly show you what frequency the AF-5X use. With the shield it's reduced....

We have a box for the back of all the new dishes and a kit for their NEW 24" dish which includes our version of the ISO BEAM and a back cover box for the same price as their ISO BEAM. :cheers:

Oh and for all you want it pretty guys these are all powder coated aluminum white.

Personally I like bare aluminum but what ever.
