I think I'll go for two antennas then. :-)

Do I have to take positioning of the antennas into consideration? I'm
going to drill two holes in the soekris case, one for each antenna
(with antennas directly mounted on the case). But due to the already
crowded back panel of the net4801 case the antennas will have to be
pretty close to each other, about 6-7cm. Should that be ok?

thanks
