We ran some 900mhz full duplex links back in the late 90's over here.
They worked well within a 25 mile range. The equipment including the
beams and LMR cabling cost around $400 per end (if I remember right).
At $500 per modem the ones you found seem a little pricey to me but I'd
guess that's in the ball park at 'todays' costs for that type of
equipment. If you are looking for high throughput over short paths I
would think 900mhz is certainly a good choice.
