EXPERIMENT -- Connecting Alfa card with the "Satellite dish antenna"

Yesterday i was just experimenting on alfa card and the things that i found was quite exciting.

I removed the antenna of the alfa card and i connected my alfa card with my Laptop without the antenna to check the networks in the vicinity.

i got only a single network and  that was my home wireless network.

The airodump result :

 Signal and Noise Level:

After that i Followed these steps:

1. I Removed the dish antenna cable connecting to the set top box.

2. I binded the male type connector of the satellite dish antenna (connecting to the set top box) with the copper wire (which is used in the earphone) using a plastic Clip.

3. I then binded the other end of the copper wire  with the alfa card male type connector.

Now i know its kind of weird but after configuring this setup, i connected the alfa card with my Laptop and guess what? i was able to get 3 networks with a high range.

Signal and Noise Level :

Am still doing some experiments to increase the gain for the antenna
