I finally saw a deal on a new antenna for wi-fi when we're traveling. We had been using a Hawking HWU8DD that we bought almost three years ago. It was the best $75 we ever spent. Had lots of use out of it, and it still works but it's got a loose connection inside and sometimes acts funny.
So I knew that Hawking had been producing newer versions of this antenna and so we bought the HWDN1 from Hawking's eBay store and had it shipped here. Total cost including taxes and everything...$85.
Consider that the best Canadian price I could find for this unit was $130! Why are we so ripped off up here?!
Probably won't get a chance to test it much this summer, but maybe I'll take it on my drive up to Perth one day and see how well it works. The original antenna was supposed to increase your range by 300%, and this new one says 600%, so if that's the case, we should be able to get online pretty easy during our travels.
