Testing my 2.4 mesh antenna...
Yesterday I tried out my 2.4m mesh antenna. Basically I wanted to find out if the support design would work. Results are not bad, but still I need to measure and design the final structure.
The picture shows how big the dish is, compared to myself: I am 1.84m tall...
The motorized dish left to the mesh is 1m in diameter.
This makes me pretty scared, regarding the action of wind. We get wind with up to 120km/h.
I set the dish up permanently! Still need some improvement on the fixture, but I'm getting there...
