LMR400 cable loses 6.8 db per 100 feet, or 22.2 db per 100 meters.
A 100 foot run of LMR400 negates the benefits of a 7 db gain antenna.
LMR600: 4.4 db /100 feet, 14.5 db / 100 meters
Plan Alpha is to mount the AP or wireless bridge on the mast, and use a long run of CAT5 to a router in the building. You can use up to 185 feet of CAT5.
