Answer to q2: I don’t have unobstructed views to any hamwan sites. It’s just one drawback to not being living on the water or on a hill. So, I’m constrained to mobile use until I can talk one of my community members to let me install it permanently on a tall structure. I’m hopeful and probing locally for sites that overlook Lake Washington.

It doesn't handle cellular modems* like the TL-MR3020, but it is tiny, can run directly off 12V (PoE injected), and comes with the full Mikrotik Router OS so you can do advanced routing stuff if needed.

>> I got my hamwan link Working from the historic Madison Park ferry dock in Seattle to Haystack with 1.8mbps down and 3.8 up. Then connected to a tplink WiFi hotspot and sent Winlink email from a laptop and email from an iPhone. Pretty darned happy with this new super power. Thanks Puget Sound Hamwan volunteers.
