Hi David,
I hope you do not make my mistake, and start with waveguides and not with
SMA connectors and rigid coaxial cables, it is day and night!
It works with SMA feed, IF it works, but your loss will make your economic
investment be 3 or more db less.
WR90 is ideal, WR75 is not bad, but much better than a system with SMA.
