As far as directional antenna are concerned, is anyone using this or have suggestions along these lines?

I had looked at various directional and gain antennas but soon realized that at 2.4GHz the coax and connector losses are going to eat up most of the gains unless you keep the coax real short. (is 18" going to provide enough movement for how you intend to use the antenna?)

Instead, I choose a USB WiFi adaptor that can be mounted directly at the feed point of whatever antenna I decide to build. I may want to find something with more power if I decide to do more than just scanning.
