    So I just picked up a new wifi directional antenna specifically the Yagi long range directional antenna from simple wifi. I currently live in a pretty hilly area so i thought hmm maybe I bring this and my laptop up a hill see what I can see so I did. Hooked the antenna in using my Alfa long range wifi dongle specifically the AWUS036ACH with the modded drivers so I could use it running a Kali vm and hot damn I was getting signals from all over the valley I took the pcap kismet generated and cross referenced it against the wiggle wifi app logging page and I was pulling signals from anywhere from a half mile to a mile away and some weaker signals from even further I think ile do some more experimentation maybe time some icmp pings from send to receive so I can time them so yeah that.

    Tldr. Got long range directional wifi antenna really surprised at the range.

    It really depends on the power and antenna on the other side (source).
    Being able to see an ssid =/= being able to reliably capture conversations.
