I cut out the shapes no problem but finding a connector was another matter the one used in cam mans plans is, I belive, unobtainable in single quantities so I opted for a 'Solder SMA stub panel jack captive' item 295 6315 from the RS componants list UK and a plug - plug connector. Spaced the plate to 5mm using pieces of upvc
I AM going to buy a good system ,honest!, but we have been playing with cheapo Hong Kong sets we have a 1.2 and a 100mw 2.4 gh.
Did it work?
My Grandson and I braved the bitter winds, here in the UK, on Sunday and attempted a test, we had planned to go over the park but the cold left us indoors fortunatly we live next to a school so after contacting the caretaker he let us 'play' on the field.
So we are in the field the grandson walks off with the camera he gets 160 yards
(not very far but it is a small school) and there is no decernable difference so I need more room and better weather.
However I have now reread cam man's intructions and some related alternative threads and I wonder if the SMA connector I used has "cocked it up" I now read the centre pin diameter can make all the difference this one is 1.3 mm I left the insulation on having trimmed it back to 5mm, after reading some advice that it should be left on, but that is not so in cam man's design oh well back to the tin snips
But I think I will find a bit more space before I run it over with my car
