A cellular signal booster kit comes with many different components, like two antennae and a repeater unit. It usually requires a form of cable that is different from what a satellite TV dish may need. It comes in all shapes and sizes, each made for a particular application.
Connectors and cables are utilized to connect a signal booster’s parts. The cable connection is involved whether your cell phone signal booster is an indoor model or in-vehicle model. You will run a coax cable from the external antenna to your booster unit, and then from the latter to the internal antenna. When the electronic signal goes through the cable, it will often lose the strength of it. So you will have to consider the antenna strength and select a stronger cable to fit your needs.
The form of cable you will need depends on the area that needs to be covered. Calculate the distance you want to run the cable between these components. If the distance is shorter, then you will have a crisper cellular signal on the mobile device you use. There will possibly a signal loss when it travels across any particular distance. The loss of a shorter booster cable will be less as compared to a thicker and longer one. The amount of loss that may be acceptable for you depends on your application and cellular device.
For a bigger area, you will require cables that result in a minimum loss of signal. These forms of cables will be thick and will be made for longer distances. There are cables designed to meet the needs of distances of up to about 930 meters, but thinner products are also available in the market. RG-6 is the most prevalent form of cable. RG-6 cables are around 50 feet long, and these are fitted with F-type connectors. So we recommend these in the event you will run over 15 meters of cable for the booster.
RG-6 is an extremely common form of coax cable, and it is utilized in an array of commercial and residential products, including a signal repeater and cable TV. Coax cable is available in different lengths. The length and thickness of this form of the cable will affect the transmitted signal strength. So you must select a product with the right thickness and length. Some features of your cable will determine how good or bad the wavelength that goes through it is.
