How can we tell if the antennas are fully aligned for wireless point to point bridge setup?

For wireless point to point bridge setup, how can we tell if the antennas (directional or sectoral) are fully aligned?

Is there an integrated LED indicator (for alignment) that displays signal strength on the AP?

It does not have a light.  You will need to run a command to see the RSSI
