Actually, I am in a rural area -- there are maibe 10 houses between both 
  sides of the link for a distance of 3 Km -- so hopefully it wouldn't 
be too bad.

I must say that I'm quite surprised with your noise figures, we've been 
using a 2.4 Km 900 MHz with 1.5 Mbps actual throughput in Quebec City 
(pop. around 700K) with no problem beside ice in the winter. However, I 
must say that Quebec City is not very dense.

I was considering using yagis, I think that they are vertically 
polarized, right? Can I put them at a 90 deg angle to get horizontal 

Thanks and 73,
