Hello, Gentlemen!

Checking the 3765 installation guide, we are offen with the same question...

The "Pigtail" is necessary for all the antennas or not ?

What defines that?  

Thank you very much!

Yes, the pigtail is always necessary for outdoor deployments because you need lightning protection.  The 3765/67e come with 6 reverse SMA connectors on the AP.  The lightning protectors are using reverse N connectors, as well as the LMR cables and antennas.  The pigtail converts the R-SMA from the AP to R-N to connect to the LP.  Please note that if you have any unused R-SMA connectors on the AP, they should be terminated with a R-SMA terminator to prevent RF leakage.
