[OLSR-users] multiple radios with sector antennas

I am wondering if anyone has ever used olsrd ad-hoc or any 802.11 ad-hoc
network in a multiple radio sector antenna environment.
I was thinking of using 3 radios and 3 120 degree sector panel antennas
to get 20db of gain from an HNA node.
http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/hg2420p_120.php is one of the sector
antennas I was thinking of using.
The only problem I can see from this is of course interference, as they
are all on the same channel. Could using iptables and blocking by MAC
address be a possible solution?
You can't get 20db of gain from any omni, and using amplifiers is just
something I don't like to do, it makes a noisy signal.
The antenna gain patterns are on that page, it seems you could also fix
the problem by having each antenna on a circle with a 10ft radius or so,
which means each antenna is 20.93 ft apart on the circumference of the
