7,15,18 in telecom basically.for in city links generally we use 15 or 18 ghz but for backbone(main link or longer) we use 7Ghz.this also depends upon a Tx parameter annual availabilty(means your link will be stable x% for through out the year depending upon the local atmosphereic conditions.for exp. u can plan for any 18 Km link with 15 Ghz with 1.2 Mtr dish with good recieve level but the annual availability will be less so u will have to go with 7Ghz.
