Mikrotik Groove Radio Antenna

Am looking to install a wifi system from Island Time PC. Considering the Mikrotik Groove radio installed on top the mizzen mast. Already there is a GAM VHF antenna for the WatchMate AIS.

Anyone with a similar arrangement? Have you experienced interference between them? It'll be a pretty small distance of separation.

Thanks,

Debi

Re: Mikrotik Groove Radio Antenna

I bought the exact setup you are looking at from Island Time and have been really happy! Bob (I think that is his name) has been very helpful. He actually originally pointed me to another device that he does not sell until I explained what I was trying to do and then recommended the Groove. I used a hose clamp to connect the device to an up leg on my bimini. And oddly enough it is right next to the bottom of my GAM antenna, just as you are asking. The thing works fantastic and I have not noticed any issues with either the wifi of the SSB.

SV Rapture: Thank you for the feedback. I will be buying from Island Time once I work out the delivery logistics!
