DIY Cell Phone Signal Booster Installation.

Quick Installation Overview.

Select location for amplifier.

1. Select a location to install the Signal Booster that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight, moisture and has proper ventilation. Do not place the Signal Booster in an air-tight enclosure.

Select location for exterior antenna.

2. Select a location on the roof of the building to install the Outside Antenna. Best location for external antenna is where there is best signal. Use a cell phone in test mode to find the strongest signal from the cell tower.

Select location for interior antenna.

3. Select a location inside home or apartment to install internal antenna. Best location for interior antenna is where signal is weakest or where you need signal to make most calls. Place it in the center of room where the signal needs to be amplified. Use a cell phone test mode to find the weakest signal inside your home/office.

Note: Distance between exterior and interior antennas may be needed for booster to work optimally. A minimum separation distance of 20 vertical feet is best for operation. If you notice inside coverage boost is not sufficient, you may need as much as 75 feet of horizontal separation.

Connect cables from exterior & interior antennas to amplifier.

4. Run the Outside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to the connector labeled "Outside Antenna" on the Signal Booster. Run the Inside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to the connector labeled "Inside Antenna" on the Signal Booster. Lightning Surge Protection is recommended for all in-building installations.

Power on the cell phone signal amplifier.

5. Before powering up the Signal Booster, verify that both the Outside Antenna and the Inside Antenna are connected and check that all connections are tight. Note: Be careful when plugging the connectors in so as not to bend the center pins on the connectors.

All Done!
