Default Spare satellite dish use/hack

If you need a little better signal remotely and have a old dish laying around the round dish is better than newer oval style and want to use Bluetooth or speaker takes a little setup but uses no power in this case boosted the weak signal about 20db

Clever idea. I wonder what a 10' dish would do.

One thing for sure, It would look funny sitting in the living room.

You have to watch your signal strength on the phone to get it just right.
In dbm,this location was -125 dbm to start, which is really bad,ended at -105 with 25 asu.which is a very good gain for not boosting the signal electronically.

It makes it usable, otherwise is was not at this location.
