Boost The Signal

We have very poor cell reception at River Ranch.  And the paid Wifi connection is not much better.  So we decided to give the weBoost 4G-X signal booster a try.  It is hard to find good information about antennas and connectors and things, so I kinda winged it.

I got the weBoost 4G-X which is a mobile (car) version, because the home version was like $900.  This one was already $479.  So if this doesn't work, we go without cell service.

In addition to this booster, which is designed to be installed in a car, I needed a couple more things.  The antennas this kit brings seem inadequate for the RV job.  So I got a bigger internal antenna and cable (so the phones can connect to it) and a bigger "trucker" external antenna (so it can connect to the cell service), and a 120V adapter (the included adapter was only 12V).

Stay tuned for a review.  If you don't hear from us, well, it means it didn't work... :)
