It's almost certainly a right angle sma monoloop antenna from someones drone. There is probably one just like it, still attached to the drone.

It’s made out of hose fittings and a pipe reducer .

Homemade and slapped together .

If that’s any type a clue for anyone ?

I’m 95% certain on a dowsing rod.

But I’m not married to the idea . 😁

old dowsing rods were two pieces of copper rod for finding water.


Yup,
An old aerial, will suit just well.

It didn't fall of a truck inside my fenced yard. Someone had to have trespassed for it to be where I found it.


Whatever. That's still what it is.

I’m thinking dowsing might be worth a thread. Anybody agree ?

Antennas like that were also used on the back of old satellite boxes for local tv stations. The wire itself is just an extension of the center wire in the RG-6 connecter. By itself there are no electronics that can monitor or spy on you.

That's what old short people use to reach high stuff.


Or maybe not...



Tride that it didn’t work .

I can’t lock the circle without putting your hand on it.

So I went and got a stepstool . 😉

Ethernet antenna for a wireless card - PC.

We have a lot of them in the field on our PCs. Though, it looks like the rubber was stripped away from the metal. It's usually covered by a black rubber casing.

Are we all looking at the same picture?

I would read it.

I think dowsing would make an interesting thread.

the only meter inside the fence is a wifi electric meter. gas detection may be I had a new Aircon put in maybe the team used on when they filled the refrigerant to be sure there were no leaks and then they dropped it. That was over a month ago.

I was wondering if someone was trying to hack my SOHO network would they us something like it. I did have some Aircon guys here a month ago who may have dropped it.

I agree with FD, it looks like an antenna which has been fashioned to use as a dousing rod. There's probably another one just like it somewhere.

Is the PL-259 connector actually terminated inside (look inside the ferrel and see if you can see cable)?

As for the antenna itself, these are commonly used for 800MHz trunked radio base station units. The length of the antenna is a fraction of the wavelength. It could be 900Mhz, but it's not much lower than 8-900 because it would be quite a bit longer. 400MHz antennas about 2 feet long and good 100MHz antennas are about 8 feet long.

Oh, and no, it cannot be used to spy on your wifi. It's just a simple RX/TX antenna for radio. Your wifi is a much higher frequency (and much lower powered).

That appears to be an old school wireless antenna .
The connector is BNC
Used to have a wireless network card with almost that same look .(wasn't as colorful)
Insert the card in 2 PCs , screw the antenna on , fire up those PCs , install software , and in just a few minutes....
A wireless network.
That was the early 90s

a slightly modified-by-progress item, this one being an integrated radio mike receiver module


Thereby meaning you could also hear the water running.....

I dunno. You in the country?
Mayhaps a transmitter from a dog collar. Someone hunting coyotes nearby maybe.
