Hi,
Quick question...
Does anyone know if you can build a directional antenna for a Zigbee transmitter (at 2.4GHz)? Maybe a dipole antenna?
Thanks

A dipole is only slightly directional, but anything high and in clear will help increase range. If you want point-to-point, Yagis or coffee can antennas at both ends are the way to go. At 2.4Ghz, feedline loss becomes significant, so keep it short and direct.

You can google directional antenna's for 2.4Ghz Wifi, they will be the same. You'll get the ones that MikeMI mentioned.
