Cell signal boosters are simple devices that are used for amplifying weak cell phone signals. They are very easy to install and maintain. A cellular signal booster contains only three parts including an external antenna, an amplifier and an internal antenna. You can install it in your home, office or vehicle even if you don’t have much technical knowledge. Therefore, we are listing the procedures you have to follow for installing a signal booster in your vehicle. This will help you to install the booster in your vehicles easily.
Perform A “Soft” Installation Before You Install The Booster Permanently
First of all, you have to ensure that all the components are working and the location you selected for mounting each part is ideal. For this, place the cell signal booster unit in the location you have chosen and run the cords of the antenna from the booster to the location of the antenna. Then run the power cord to the power outlet you selected. This will help you to know whether the location is apt for placing your antennas and booster unit. If it is not working properly, you can change the location.
Place The Signal Booster Unit In The Location You Selected
After finalizing the location of your booster unit, you can mount it on the selected location. Usually, the booster unit will be placed in an inconspicuous location, like under a seat. Also, it should be possible for you to access it easily if needed.
Mount The External Antenna On Your Roof
It is better to place your external antenna on the roof of your vehicle, as the metal body can block the signals. Also, if you place the external antenna on the trunk deck lid of your vehicle, then it might pick up the signals of your internal antenna, resulting in a feedback loop which can reduce the performance of your booster. This condition is called oscillation. Therefore, the ideal location for placing your external antenna is on your roof, where it can efficiently receive outside signals without picking up the signals of your internal antenna.
Mount The Internal Antenna On The Location You Need
You can choose a location for your internal antenna so that it will efficiently distribute you the signals. If you want it to transmit signals to all the passengers equally, choose a central location.
Connect The Cord From Each Antenna To The Booster Unit
After you place your booster unit, external antenna and internal antenna in the required locations, connect the cord from the antennas to your booster unit.
Connect The Booster To The Power Outlet
Now it is time to connect your booster to the power unit. After this, you can switch on the power unit and check whether everything is working properly.
