Event Details


Saturday October 22nd we will be teaching a workshop on how to build your own 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi antenna using a household can such as soup can, coffee can, or veggie can. It is a simple waveguide antenna. At the end of the workshop you will have your own working 15+ DBi wave-guide antenna that you can use to connect to distant wireless networks.

This workshop will include all of the supplies you need to get started and make your own wireless cantena except for the wireless card, which we recommend you purchase from Amazon or Newegg  (we recommend Alfa AWUS036H cards though anything with an RP-SMA connection will work)

If you can not attend, but would like to undergo the project on your own, we will be providing the instructions to anyone subscribed to our Facebook event page here:
