TP-Link 14db Directional Antenna

I've Just Sourced a TP-Link 'TL-ANT2414A'

It's a 14db directional Antenna. its comes with a 1m R-SMA male cable so it plugs straight into my edimax ew713-USG taking the place of the 4db omni. Makes a big difference now were cooking with gas

This antenna comes with a fitting kit for screwing it flat to a wall or you can fit it to a pole with the icluded screw clamps. I have no intentions of fitting it outside however and wanted a stand that would allow me to position it inside, it needed to be sturdy enough to hold it soundly but adjustable to angle it at any direction.

Off to the shed and i've found an old sky dish, hmmm... so with a few twist of a srewdriver i've managed to transform it as a stand for the aerial, the base needs a tidy but i can tilt it in any direction.
