If my license allows for 20 dB of Tx power (56 total EIRP and a 36 dBi antenna), then what do I make the Tx Power setting in the radio?
If I make the Tx power setting equal to 20 dBm, then on the dashboard I see each chain at 6 dB less.
If I move the Tx power setting up to 26 dBm, then I see 20 dBm per polarity on the dashboard, again 6 dB less.
What’s the correct and legal answer? I understand you essentially add 3 dB when you add a second antenna for MIMO, but how does it work in this situation? For this question, I’m using 2x 80 MHz channels running 1.4.6 firmware.
Thanks for the clarification,
