Build a cantenna

NESIT Hackerspace in Meriden is holding a “build a cantenna” day next Saturday, October 22 · 2:00pm – 8:00pm.

The workshop is on how to build your own 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi antenna using a household product such as soup can, coffee can, pringles can, or veggie can. It is a simple wave-guide antenna. At the end of the workshop you will have your own working 15+ DBi wave guide antenna that you can use to connect to distant wireless networks. The signup to get the parts has already passed but if you order quick from FabCorp, your materials might be in time for the class.

The public is also welcome to come and watch the class.


illwill created a small program in MASM that simulates the old phone blue box (MF tones) & DTMF tones. It essentially plays the tones from .mp3 files that have been modified to act like .wav files so the file size is small. They are then embedded in the application as a resource. You just press the button to hear the tone. Download it ::HERE::
