So here is the rig I have devised for an outdoor dropbox. It is 100% weather-proof and does not seem to impair the broadcast capability of the pineapple. In the screenshot, I am on the main level of my house connected to the router upstairs; the dropbox is outside sealed up and mounted to my gas meter. I'd be interested to see what other people have come up with. Total cost for parts at Home Depot, was around $30.

Cheers.

Awesome, I'll monitor that as well.

EDIT:

Those are some expensive boosters, I think I'll live for now. If something more cost effective comes up then I may investigate. For the purpose of my rig, I don't think I need too much boosting, I designed it for pretty localized targets. I was thinking more along the lines of a coffee shop, campus lounge area, or any other spot with a high concentration of internet seeking people.

I agree, I'm looking for the same thing.... 30 miles is a little much for me.

Did you look at this one?

That seems more in the ball park, and small enough to finagle into my rig too. If more space is needed, I was thinking something like this to attach and make more room while still giving the appearance.
