Defcon Day 3 – 125 Mile Wi-fi Shot

Team PAD has done it again. Running out of highway last year they were only able to get 55.1 miles. This year they made it all the way into Utah to do their record breaking shot. Congratulations guys!

If anybody is looking for Primestar or DirectTV dishes to do long links with, I’ve gotten two of them using freecycle.

  1. Ask any (small) retailer of Primestar and DirectTV dishes for one, generally most of them have a pile of unused ones. A friend of mine has the floor of a small room covered, and Radio Shack in town has a small shed full. Their difficult to throw away, so I’m sure they’d give you a free one just to get rid of it. (And yes, they work great for dish antenna’s! Mine’s about 23dBi)

  2. m4ff3w, seems to me that if you’re in the line of sight, you *could* leach the signal. Though, I’ll grant that would have to know it was there if you were going to intercept a tightly focused signal. Still, you know what they say about security through obscurity :)
