not familiar with the term "moby" as applied to antennas (or
much else) and google wasn't helpful either (but I did find
out about Moby-Duck which was pretty interesting)
>>> Intrex sells a dish for $50:
the problem with these (apart from being big) is that you
need a wifi card with a coax connector, which I didn't have
at the time. For my next trip to the FiL's, I bought a USB
wifi card with a coax connector that I ran up to a 10
element wifi yagi which I mounted on a tripod designed to
hold lights for photographers. That got great reception.
However this is frequency dependant and doesn't help the OP.
