View Full Version : Bluetooth amplifier through a satellite?
06-15-2009, 08:03 PM
So I'm working on possibly making a gigantic bluetooth amplifier through a satellite dish (much like one through DTV or Dish). Unfortunately I have not much knowledge in the way of electronics. I am studying as much as I can about how BT transmits its signal. Any idea if this would work? I figure it should since most dishes use a yagi antenna and based off operation blue sniper... as seen here.

... or not...

well I know of the bluetooth sniper and it looks like tomshardware guide has a walk though on it

Yeah but its not quite the same thing, Ive experimented with it but im going a tad bit different. The Blue Sniper is a single line (think like a cantenna). Im trying to get a wide area. Broaden the signal to cover a not as far range but a wider area

well, all a sat dish does is concentrate a radio signal so that it can reach longer, it can't give you a detection area. For something like that you need special equipment like what they use for radio station transmitters.

Before you amp a bluetooth signal, if you live in the states I highly recommend checking the upper amp limit imposed by the FCC upon bluetooth transmissions.
That being said, here's a website (you may have found) that tested different methods of Bluetooth amplification...
...at the bottom is the results of testing using different antenna types.
