Re: 2.4ghz Parabolic Grid Antenna Weather & my time haven't allowed me to put the antenna up outside yet.
Out of nowhere my antenna is getting 2 bars of signal (85 rssi, -94/93 db, -4.50 EC/IO)
This is with my card not being attached to the antenna, just taped to the window with a 6ft USB cable.
Any idea what can cause such jumps in my signal? It hasn't been like this for atleast 3 weeks. My tower is in a pretty rural area as well.
**UPDATE** The burst in signal only lasted about 30 minutes. Very odd, it hasn't been like that in weeks/months. What could be the reason for that boost?

If your parabolic were mounted and you had these issues I would have you check all the connections between the card and the antenna... but I suspect your current problem is simply it being too low to focus on a strong point.
