    My first attempts at a DIY antenna booster. The first one is made from a gallon milk carton and the second one was made from a manila file folder. The winds here in Kansas today were 35+ mph so I have not been able to test them yet. Let me know what you think...these were both made with simple materials I had laying around the home, probably less than .50 to make.

    Just a lot of breakfasts... lol...

    Seriously... curious to see if it does work. I have a few 3D print options for one of those, might just try it...

    You might google windsurfer antenna to get a better idea how they work and how to make them. I made a windsurfer antenna last week. Haven't flown with it yet but I did test it with my EMF meter and it showed a significantly stronger signal.
