Over this sort of distance I've found that using 18db conifers or 14db hills tends to get
a better connection

These are the stats from a Minitar (AP Mode) to a Cabletron Roamabout over ~9km
Link Quality:24/92  Signal level:-74 dBm  Noise level:-98 dBm

That's with a 14db Hills on one end and a 18db conifer on the other.  Horizontal polarity

Every cloud has a silver lining (except for the mushroom shaped ones, which have a lining of Iridium & Strontium 90)
