||What about rain? Doesn’t that affect the reliability of a fixed wireless connection?
||In most cases, people asking this question are somewhat familiar with millimeter-wave microwave radio, used at 23, 28 or 38 GHz. And it is true, that you have to build in sufficient margin in the receive signal level to accommodate the fading that occurs due to rainfall at those frequencies. However, even at millimeter-wave frequencies, a well-designed link should be very reliable with a "5 - 9s" availability (that means 99.999%) even if its range will be only a couple of miles in heavy rain areas. In addition, at 5.8 GHz, the UNII band frequency that B2X is using, the attenuation of the radio signal due to rain is insignificant and so rain has no practical impact on the link reliability at all.
