I did do the cheezy aluminum foil light test with a bright lamp and it seemed to focus out at around 15 cm.

My question is this: Assuming that I want to make a connection with a distant AP, and not passively listen, would making a deep reflector with a focal point far inside the "dish" direct more energy to the AP then a shallow dish with the focal point outside the depth? I assume that the dipole I intend to use radiates evenly in 360 degrees from the polarity, and having it inside would reflect more in the direction I want, but I havn't seen any designs to this effect anywhere.
