      Any news on where to order the LPA?

      The LPA will be great. Mounted in front of a parabolic reflector (dish), you're talking some real gain at microwave freqs.

      I would love to have the option to get these additional antennas. Can you provide links to the source, or optionally make them available from your site?

      Life expectancy what secondary to necessary steps to get a good solid signal. Just wandering if others use finger tight method vs using an actual wrench.

      GiligainIsland: Based on my experience, you can get a lot more than 500 cycles finger-tight. If you are concerned about connector life, you can install a short SMA male to SMA female "sacrificial" adapter.

      Question: is this necessary to follow the following research for using SMA connectors? Or is finger tightening sufficient?

      Per WiKi: "SMA connectors are rated for up to 500 mating cycles, but to achieve this it is necessary to properly torque the connector when making the connection. A 5/16 inch torque wrench is required for this, set to 3–5 in·lbf (0.3 to 0.6 N·m) for brass, and 7–10 in·lbf (0.8 to 1.1 N·m) for stainless steel connectors. Flats are sometimes also provided on the cable side of the connector assembly so that a second wrench can be used to prevent it from rotating and damaging the joint to the cable."
