Fox hunting! Yagi!

To find the fox you need to build a directional antenna. Yagi is usually used. Test the antenna after you build it, an make sure it is DIRECTIONAL. A friend of mine built, i think the world first omni-directional yagi.

Below links to some sites to help you build a yagi. Take care building it, measurement must be precise. If you are the adventurous kind, check the net to build an attenuator. This will help you find the fox more accurately.

PSU Blown

A freak thunderstorm struck my area about 7 days ago. My PC's PSU is blown. PC was plugged in but not turned on. So until i get a replacement (which may take some time), there wont be any posting from me. Currently using a borrowed PC. Moral, remove power point of pc even if not turned on. Malaysian storms are getting worse. luckily only the pc's psu was fried. Printer and modem safe. Thank GOD for the lightning arrestor installed. Hopefully the motherboard and other accessories are not fried.
