This is my attempt to make a half decent dipole using galvanized 2mm wire rope and galvanized wire rope clamps. 1 1/4″ UV protected water pipe, female panel mount N connector and electrical wire which will be made to be as waterproof as possible.
This is little bit of info about the ~6dBi WiFi Antenna I have built. All up it took me about 2 hours to make and build the Antenna. All that is left to do is test the Antenna to see how good it works and that it is on frequency.
The materials required:
approx 300mm 1.6mm copper wire
panel-mount female N-connector
250mm length of 20mm light-duty electrical conduit
2 end-caps to suit 20mm conduit
This collinear simply consists of a length of copper wire with some loops located at specific locations. The dimensions of the sections of the antenna are important, and are shown in the diagram below.
