    I was unaware that the given link no longer worked, do you have a certain antenna in mind you would like to make??
    and need a blueprint for it.

    No problem, we are all just human, so I let you know that the link did not work. (y)
    Have neither "a certain" antenna in mind, nor know more about it.
    That's why I would have been interested in the link, hoping for more information.

    Thank you and have a nice Day!

    Making an antenna is not hard by any means, I made a "cantenna" using an aluminum waste paper basket and an adjustable LCD screen arm, what you need to look into is a chart for wavelengths - ie you need to mount your coax inset within your "antenna" housing a certain amount of inches from the "back plate" of the housing you build - it is different depending on 2.4 or 5 so keep that in mind when building - building your own you will need to build for one wavelength or the other or two separate antenna for 2.4 and 5 capturing.

    Tools you will likely need:

    1.) Side cutters / aluminum snips / circular cutting disc mutli-tool "only one of these types is needed"

    2.) Hot glue gun

    3.) Soldering gun and spool of solder - or a wall outlet extension cord with insullation removed to expose live hot wire and a spool of solder

    3.) Coax with large to rp-sma connector

    4.) Rp-sma cable to your rp-sma female connector on external wifi usb card

    5.) Housing you plan to use - ie paint can, beans can, pringles can, copper plate, waste basket, copper mesh grid built soldering coat hangers, what ever you choose

    6.) Research, tinker and have fun :)
