    It depends on what antennas you have and what your power level is.

    Assuming you have the 23 dBi model and are running 17 dBm tx power, then RSL should be -54 for 2 miles. The path loss is about 118 dB, so Tx Power + Antenna Gain Tx + Rx Antenna Gain - 118 = Expected RSL.

    -69 is above what is needed for max modulation, but if it isn't aligned right it won't hold up as well to adverse conditions.
