a Pretty Fly Workshop by Roel Roscam Abbing and Dennis de Bel
Taking inspiration from Pretty Fly For A Wi-Fi (in Materialising the Internet), in this workshop by Roel Roscam Abbing and Dennis de Bel participants learn to construct their own do-it-yourself Wi-Fi antennas using locally sourced materials. During the workshop participants will be guided through the steps of understanding how Wi-Fi antennas work, how this knowledge can be used to make one's own antenna and how to test them for signal strength. The workshop will end with a set up to see which antenna design has the best reach.
To use the Wi-Fi antenna it is recommended to bring a usb Wi-Fi dongle with detachable antenna (recommended model: TP-Link TL-WN722N) and a N-male to RP-SMA-male cable (this one for example).
