Windsurfer parabolic WiFi antenna

Last year, my friend Anthony showed me the Ez-12 Parabolic Reflector Template, a cheap and easy-to-construct antenna designed to get better performance on a wireless connection.

 

You can see my attempt above; the USB Wireless dongle is suspended at the focal point of the antenna. The photo doesn't show the back of the antenna, but it is covered in aluminum foil.
