SXT Lite 5

Just picked up a MikroTik SXT 5NDR2 (or SXT Lite 5 for short) https://mikrotik.com/product/RBSXT5nDr2  This thing is small!  27dBm and a 16dBi dish that fits in your hand.  Perfect for stealth installations.  I've asked Joe to have a look at it.  Hopefully we'll get support for it.

Andre, K6AH

I want one!

Thanks. I love it - I want one! (or several)  Hope Joe can make it work.

Info

Same gain as an NSM5 (but it's a third the size of a Nanostation), and looks like horizontal and vertical beamwidths are about 30 degrees.  Makes sense with such a small dish.  Amazon sells them for $68.  Or you can get a 20-pack for $1039  :-D

SXT series

Any progress on the SXT?  ...and could the SXTsq Lite2 reasonably be supported?   The price, size, and shape are appealing especially in 2Ghz situations. 

Thanks to everyone for working on the development team.

I have both an SXT G-2HnD and

I have both an SXT G-2HnD and 5nDr2 (lite5) in hand.   Looking at the LHG/LDF 2 devices first, then these.  Finishing up on WAN wifi client now -- is out and about being tested -- looking good.

Which .bin can i use

Thus the SXT (2.4 GHz) will work with AREDN. Which .bin do i need. The SXT has the same processor as the LHG.

I'll be looking at the SXT

I'll be looking at the SXT devices in the next week.  Haven't looked at which image this takes, guessing the same as the LDF/LHG devices.

different SXT hardware revisions -- SXT lite 2

It turns out the SXT lite 2 I have  "SXTG 2HnD" is the original version 1 of the hardware with 128Mb NAND flash.   The hardware version with OpenWrt existing support is ​RBSXT2nDr3, or version 3 with NOR Flash.    If anyone has this newer version in hand, and willing to work though the process to get it working, let me know.   Next step is to load the .elf from the nightly build and send me a support data download from admin page.  This device takes the rb-nor-flash-16M-sysupgrade.bin firmware image.

getting the SXT lite 5 working

It appears the SXT 5nD I have has flash memory issues -- boots with numerous NAND flash memory errors and can't attach.  If you have the openwrt supported version  "​​RBSXT5nDr2", or version 2 and willing to give a try to get it working, let me know.   Note, I see this version on the white sticker on top of the RJ45 connector (pulled the case apart).  The motherboard label only says "RouterBOARD SXT 5nD".
