    Cell Repeaters

    Advertisement



    I've seen a few wireless cell repeaters sold to mount to your car and was wondering if anyone has one and if they actually do work in low-signal areas. And is there any specific brand that's worth getting or not even worth looking at?

    They work if you get the correct frequency for you phone, but also keep in mind if the signal isnt there then there is nothing to repeat..

    Re: Cell Repeaters

    we use signal boosters in our company trucks (West Texas boon docks area natural gas pipeline industry) and they work great, if there is a signal. The boosters seem to add about 10miles to your tower range. If you get one make sure to get the privacy hand set or an ear bud, without it you have to take the phone out of the craddle and bye bye signal. You could opt for the bluetooth through your car stereo, but no privacy then.

    Wilson Cellular makes wireless repeaters that don't require a cradle. They use an internal antenna tied into an amplifier which boosts the signal to an external antenna. They are costly (around $500 for a complete setup) but work beautifully. If you can justify the cost they are well worth the money. We installed just the external antennas they sold onto some geological survey trucks and they said they worked beautifully.

    Just for clarification -- repeaters and amplifiers are two different things.
