For the record, at each end was a WRET54GL running Thybor firmware.  The 
internet side had a 180 flat panel antenna at 7-10db gain.  There were 3 
APs in client mode, as well as normal users.  The first 2 APs had about 
150 yards with clear line of site (other than occasional trees) and used 
the Hawking 15db 90 degree indoor antenna. 
(Outdoors, by the way)  The last AP was the 450 yards or so.  It was in 
a covered marina, and the boat was on the wrong side of the pier.  Plus 
it had to cross two other covered piers (all metal) and several masts 
and antennas.  It had the WRT, the antenna, and the HSB2 signal booster. 
  It worked fine in very heavy rain.
