A simple microwave path test

I visited BCIT (The British Columbia Institute of Technology) ARC location today to test a microwave data shot on 5.8 GHz. Until recently we had a 2.4 GHz VINE link between the BCIT ARC station and the BCWARN hub-site on the roof of the WAC Bennett library at Simon Fraser University, however the VINE at the SFU side started producing noise on the VE7RBY repeater. Instead of tracking the noise source down to a specific stage of the VINE radio, we opted to swap it out for a newer, higher capacity, and much cheaper Ubiquity radio.

Thanks for checking it out. Hopefully before long I can put up more videos of this going up on the tower.
