Re: These Ducks Quack !!!
I tried it with a Coke can, cut up, with cardboard bracing. No improvement. But then I probably did a lousy job of shaping it.
There are a number of ways that you can have problems with that parabolic template.
You *MUST* get two things very precise. You have to have the curve shaped pretty much exactly like the one you downloaded and you pretty much have to get the antenna in the exact right spot.
Now if you are using a WET-11 or similar hardware, you will want the other template. The diplole template pretty much doesn't work with the WET-11.
If I can help you, mail me off list. Just hit the mail address on the site you got the design from.
