Introduction: H.P.W.D.A (High Power Wi-Fi Dish Antenna)

I threw this together over the week by collecting parts on the side of the road, digging in the attic, and searching eBay. It is a Dish HD satellite dish combined with a Netgear WG111v2 wi-fi card. I mounted it on a TV antenna tripod with a wood dowel. Picked up quite a few wi-fi networks. Please vote for me in one of the three contests! :D
