Hello Don,

I’m not sure what specific other hardware you were having a hard time finding. I haven’t seen anything about the 5SHPn being discontinued, and it is available on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/MikroTik-RBMetal-5SHPn-Routerboard-OUTDOOR-WIRELESS/dp/B00ADRZGOK <https://www.amazon.com/MikroTik-RBMetal-5SHPn-Routerboard-OUTDOOR-WIRELESS/dp/B00ADRZGOK>

The normal grid dish we recommend has been getting harder to find, but the ARC dishes should be available via other distributors, like Streakwave. https://www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=ARC-DA5830SD1 <https://www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=ARC-DA5830SD1>

If you do go the ARC dish route, since it’s a dual polarity dish, and our newer sites are dual polarity, you may want to consider the RB912 modem instead of the 5SHPn https://www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=RB912UAG5HPnDOT <https://www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=RB912UAG5HPnDOT> which will support dual polarity.

It seems that all of the radio products have been discontinued and are therefore out of stock at multiple distributors.  Originally I was looking at the Mikrotik Metal 5SHPn but failing that, I started working through the rest of the list with no joy.
