Comment: The www.sparkfun.com website is a fascinating place for electronics experimenters.  In this article, we see how a few simple parts and scrap material can be used to create a 2.4 Ghz antenna for boosting the signal of your IoT (Internet of Things) devices in your home or ham shack .  This simple antenna can also be used for "fox hunting" and other RF direction finding events.  The antenna exhibits a real world gain of about 6 dBi, making it a worthwhile addition to your shack's equipment.  The article is supported with appropriate photos and graphs.
