Thanks for the design and instructions! I just made one for 2.4 GHz. I used a 0.5mm copper plate for a reflector, and wow, was that a mistake. Soldering anything to that massive heat-sink is near impossible. Maybe I'll re-make it with a copper-plated PCB some other time. I haven't tested the antenna yet, but I had a chance to plug it into a meter, take a look at that return loss on the last picture. Is it normal for this kind of antenna? Mind you, my feed is very long at the moment, maybe 1.5 meters.
