Poland Dipole Panel Antenna

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

18 or 19dBi – no mater for this one 🙂 . Several dipoles printed on PCB board. Have more dipoles You get more dBis. Will it be 10 12 or 24 – You decide how much do You need.

This is defiantly homemade design. I have one small antenna whit only 4 dipoles – and it works great, so this antenna should work fine. Also will be easy to be rescaled for other bands – 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz only change dimension of the dipoles.

Cardboard Slotted Waveguide

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

On You can find interesting antenna projct cardboard slotted waveguide.

Aluminium foil and cardboard is used to build slotted waveguide wifi antenna.

Here some pictures :

Last picture is 11Ghz and 2.4Ghz versions compared.

Waveguide is tested and the resuts are very good – more than 14dbi are reached!

This is a good way to fast build and test antennas, also quick modifications are possable.

The bad thing is that You can not solder aluminium – which for this antenna is not a problem.

The author of this post call this “40cents antenna” and he has several different types of antennas builded and tested.

You can find the links on the forums.
