Title: Use a Surplus Primestar Dish as an IEEE 802.11 Wireless Networking Antenna
Author: Rob Frohne
Publication: Dr. Rob Frohne's web site, Walla Walla College, Washington
Abstract or Excerpt: Primestar was recently purchased by Direct TV who is phasing out all the Primestar equipment. This means that the dishes are being trashed, and are available for other uses such as the one I describe here. It is easy to make a surplus Primestar dish into a highly directional antenna for the very popular IEEE 802.11 wireless networking. The resulting antenna has about 22 db of gain, and is fed with 50-ohm coaxial cable. Usually LMR400 or 9913 low loss cable is used if the source is more than a few feet from the antenna. The range using two of these antennas with a line of sight path is around 10 miles at full bandwidth. I must stress the line of sight part though. Leaves really attenuate the signal. Things You Will Need: 1. A Primestar dish. 2. A juice can (about 4 inches in diameter and at least 8 inches long). 3. A chassis mount N connector. 4. You will also need a "pigtail" connector, which has the proprietary Lucent connector (for the PCMCIA card) on one end and an N connector on the other. The pigtail can be obtained from a number of online stores for $35 to $40.
