    In Dutch we would say: "FAT!" great stuff. I think it's something to try for the Aussies and Singaporians on the forum!

    Thanks for posting!

    It's funny that Japanese would need to come up with such an elaborate way to get signals when we in Oz can pick up the Japanese signal no trouble over 7,200km away.

    Nice Oceanus btw.

    It's Chinese, innit? Taiwan.

    Your point is still valid though.

    That reminds me of a homemade wi-fi antenna I had seen: http://www.techtastic.ca/articles/homemade-antenna.html

    Ha ha Topher,

    that's a simple antenna. In the early 80's my brother was a 27MHz (11 meter) amateur. He also did not use a normal antenna, but a scaffolding pipe, perfectly dipped out with a SWR of 1:1. Always fun if other amateurs were asking about your setup.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    That works with wireless internet too - if you have a wireless dongle, you can connect it with a cable to your laptop, attach it somehow to a parabolic-shaped strainer, and move around the city looking for access points.
    Basically, any signal with a wavelength longer (or is it shorter?) than the size of the mesh squares is reflected, as I understand it.

    Re: Wave Receiving

    Reminds me of these 'sound mirrors' near my home town in Kent. They were built in the 1920s as early warning devices, and were purely acoustic. They picked up the sound of aeroplanes coming across the Channel before they could be seen. They worked, but as planes became faster they became redundant.


    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Haha...it shows how lazy I've become...

    ...I studied Chinese and didn't even bother to look too closely at it.
