The storm and the busted feeder

This picture shows a busted feeder used on a dual-polarized wireless N link of the AWMN ipduh node with the AWMN geioa node. The busted feeder is on the geioa side. The connector of the LMR cable used in the horizontal polarization broke sometime in the storm and water entered the feeder.

The signal strength fall under -69 dB. However, the link did not stop working with ~120Mb/s capacity. During the day after the storm the sun dried completely the feeder and the signal strength climbed over 10 dBm.


Yeah, that's a too tough to die link.
