Use of a 2.4Ghz rectenna hooked in seriies to generate small amounts of power from ambient cordless phone/bluetooth/wifi communications.
- 07/28/2007: Gregabyte and Tanstaafl purchased copper and tin plates from RC Hobbies for the purpose of making antennas. It has been determined that we need HSMS-8101, HSMS-8202, or HSMS-2865 Schottky diodes in order for it to work. The HSMS-2865 has a wider range than the other two with the ability to pick up 915Mhz, 2.45Ghz, and 5.8Ghz.
