LOL, I'm not into taking the skirting off the house today but google had a pic of it. I have seen several sites on the internet telling how to use either style as a powerful directional wireless router antenna, if you dont mind it'* way off the FCC charts, regulation wise. I wonder how high a frequency you would have to pump into it to give radar guns a tizzy?
