Biquad Sector antenna for 2.4 GHz / 802.11b / WiFi / WLAN

Biquad Sector antenna for 2.4 GHz / 802.11b / WiFi / WLAN

This sector antenna was made from a piece of thick copper wire formed into a “bowtie” shape (the biquad – with sides 32 millimetres) and soldered to a round N-type connector. The N connector was then screwed into a steel disc about the size of a CD.
The “bowtie” section was made from a length of copper at least 400 mm (0.4 metre) long. The wire came from standard twin-and-earth stiff household mains wiring. By holding either end of the wire with a pair of pliers and giving it a sharp tug the wire was straightened. Leaving about 20 mm before starting, the bowtie shape was folded into the wire using the pliers, with the side of each square being 32 mm. The edge of the pliers was useful to obtain right angles. Both ends of the wire end up in the same place once the “bowtie” is formed. These were soldered together and bent 90 degrees out of the plane of the bowtie, ready to be soldered to the casing of the N-type connector. The “bowtie” then had an extending piece of wire soldered to it at the point where there is a 90 degree bend joining the two squares together, ready to be soldered to the centre pin (solder bucket) of the N-type connector.
