Antennas can be expensive, they can damage easily, and it is a key asset in the wireless networking. Being able to manufacture them locally means that they are easily replaceable, with local materials, cheaper and provide local labour, and improves the skills within the communities… and can also adapt to their realities.
We continue working at develope an antenna model that fits different scenarios. We are interested in systematising and sharing the procedures and tools used for its construction.
