Introduction: How to Make Indonesia's WajanBolic or PanciBolic (USB)

My third instructables! Now I'm gonna teach you all Indonesia's Wifi Antenna made of wok.

NOTE: I didn't invent this cool thing.

Step 1: Gather the Parts!

What you need:

1. Extended USB cable (click here)
2. Wok or the cover of a saucepan. (I use the cover of saucepan, because it's lighter).
3. USB WiFi
4. 3" PVC pipe. You need at least 1m. (depending of your wok size)
5. 1.25" PVC pipe. You need just a little of it, at least 5" long. Cut the middle (like in the picture)
6. Doff for 3" pipe (doff=pipe cover, holed in the middle. One of them connect to 1.25" doff using screw)
7. Doff for 1.25" pipe (stick aluminium foil inside then hole in midle, the other don't need to be holed)
8. Aluminium foil
9. Drill

If you don't understand, see picture

Step 2: Suck the WiFi USB!

Suck it up on the 1.25" PVC pipe! (picture)

Step 3: The Hardest Part...

Get the 3" PVC. Count the focal point. Make a mark in the focal point. Then put aluminum foil EXCEPT for the focal point. Then make a hole around 5.3cm from the edge for the USB wifi. Insert than USB Wifi in.

Step 4: Almost Done!

Close the 3" PVC pipe (the one with the 1.25" doff).

Step 5: Drilling!

Drill the wok and screw it with the another 3" doff.

Step 6: Secure It Together!

pokoke makyoosss..
bantu sundul ya gan.. :)

this is how to get the focal point http://www.satsig.net/focal-length-parabolic-dish.htm dont know y they didn't include thins in tho

Cool, how do you calculate the focal point? And whats a doff, haven't heard that term before.

doff = pipe cap

To find the focal point, use : D2/(16*d)
where D is diameter and d is depth.
A doff is the cap of the PVC pipe. That's what you call it here in Indonesia.

please tell me how we count the focal point?

 The design is ingenious -- the way you've combined a parabolic antenna with a waveguide antenna is both stable and cheap! Well done.

However, I don't see why you have the 1.25'' pipe piece in there. What does it do? Wouldn't the design work just as well without that piece?

i think the small piece work as holder for the wifi modem
