    If you take it off the mount and plug the holes and sand off the paint it would make a nice Wok.

    It can be used for a WIFI antenna, just mount a can antenna at the focal point and run a coax to the router.

    any Wireless grid antenna. maybe something like this
    hxxp://www.radiolabs.com/products/antennas/2.4gig/2.4grid.php
    or
    a Outdoor vertical antenna for 802.11
    which one catches signal for afar.
