TV antenna converted to WiFi...

...for when the WiFi hub is at the far end of the park. Cranks up and down, turns to aim, two YAGI elements to connect to two laptops downstairs.

No - as you can see, it's not connected to anything yet. Hopefully, tomorrow!

I've got two SMA-RP extension cables that will get me most of the way to where I want to go inside. They'll be covered (outdoors part) in split loom covering for UV shielding, and sealed with magic self-sealing tape as required. The existing lead to the antenna area was the old, old style two-conductor TV stuff.
