Today it seems that Wi-Fi is present just about everywhere. This is generally a good thing, but unfortunately there are a limited number of channels for these networks to operate on. This means that if you log onto a network that operates on top of others channel-wise, or establish your own network on a crowded channel, then your connection is going to be negatively affected.

For an easy way to find out which channels are available, YouTuber “moononournation” came up with a Wi-Fi analyzer that not only runs on the inexpensive ESP8266, but is small enough to fit inside of a Tic Tac container. This makes a great enclosure, as not only is the LCD screen protected behind clear plastic, but the charging socket is revealed by opening the (former) candy door!

Check out the build instructions here and code on GitHub.
