Mobile phone signal boosters are a Godsend and they help amplify signals in your home, office or vehicle. There are a lot of mobile phone signals boosters out there with their intended use and coverage.
Today, I am going to tell you some tips on how you can get the most out of your Mobile phone signal booster. Here are the tops tips:
- Identify your Service Provider’s frequency. This is probably one of the most important tips for mobile phone signal boosters. Most people buy signal boosters but they do not know the frequency their Service provider is using. If the frequency of the signal booster does not match the frequency that is used by your mobile phone service provider, then you will not get the benefits of the mobile phone signal booster. Always identify the frequency your Service provider is using then buy the signal booster that supports that frequency.
- Opt for Shorter Cables. Most mobile phone signal boosters require you to attach an antenna to a high place, such as the rooftop, for example. But, there are also internal antennas that you need to attach to the base amplifier unit. Opt for shorter cables so that there will be a minimal signal loss. If you are using longer cables, there will be a bigger chance that you will lose signal.
- Buy High-Quality Cables. Some mobile phone signal boosters come with very low-quality cables that easily break and they do not bring the most data as possible. If you have to, buy high-quality cables. Some high-quality cables are the RG-6 and the LMR-400.
- Considerable Distance between Antennas. Most mobile phone signal boosters come with an external and an internal antenna. Make sure that you separate them with a considerable distance. Some experts say the internal and external antennas should have at least 15ft of separation for maximum effect.
- Choosing the Correct Antenna. Mobile phone signal boosters come with 2 commonly used external antennas: the Omni-directional antenna and the Yagi-directional antenna. If your outside signal is very good and you want to get signals from multiple directions, then go for the omni-directional antenna. If, however, your mobile phone signal reception is weak, better opt for the Yagi-directional Antenna. Yagi-Directional antennas get signals from only one source. So, if you install this type of antenna, make sure that you are pointing it towards the direction of your Service provider’s cell tower.
- Inline Boosters. If, for some reason, you are not getting boosted signals because you had to use a longer cable, buy an Inline booster. Inline boosters help the mobile phone signal booster’s capacity to amplify signals. Consult your signal booster’s manual and see which inline booster (how many ohms) it supports.
If you are planning to get a mobile phone signal booster soon, these tips will help you get the most out of it. Remember, always choose the signal booster that supports your service provider’s frequency.
