just wondering on how this will work where the nodes communicate with each other as in active antennas , i have seen some of these systems suggesting the OctoScope shouldnt be used as it will effect the node communication with each other

I would be interested in seeing those "suggestions".

Nodes communicate via the RF paths provided through attenuators 1 and 2. Path loss is set so Root and "Hop 2" nodes don't connect, at least not on 5 GHz. This is meant to mirror the previous open-Air test.

I confirm node connections (or lack) while I do the setup so that I can record BSSIDs.
