If you are not satisfied with the quality of your mobile connection, it’s not a reason to continue suffering forever. You can always try to solve this problem on your own. Even when you are not ready to make significant investments in the tools that will help you to improve the quality of your signal, there is an option to create such a tool. Yes, you’ve understood us correctly. We want to inspire you to build a mobile phone signal booster, if you like making things on your own, of course.
So, even if you are not sure whether you will try to do it, you can at least read this article and make a decision when you will fully realize a whole volume of work.
Mobile signal booster: What is it?
The working principle of these devices is quite simple. You need to install an antenna on the roof of your building. It will catch a stable signal. Then, with the help of a cable, this signal will be sent to a booster. And after that, the improved signal will be transferred to a small indoor antenna that will be responsible for sending the signal to your mobile devices.
The first thing that you need to do is to fix an outdoor antenna and to do it correctly. Your antenna should be directed to the side where your operator’s cell tower is located. By the way, the antenna that we use can be also built on your own (there are a lot of instructions on how to do it available on the internet).
The exact location of cell towers can be checked in different mobile apps like Netmonitor.
Then it’s important to connect your installed outdoor antenna with a cable. For example, it can be a cable used for satellite television or any other coaxial cable.
Now it’s time to fix our indoor antenna in a room. It can be rather convenient to fix it near the ceiling.
It can be a handmade antenna or an antenna for a WiFi router (it will perfectly suit a booster intended for improving 3G or 4G signal). This antenna can be of one of the following types:
Theoretically, even if you just connect your indoor and outdoor antennas with a cable, you will get a signal. However, it won’t significantly help you as the coverage of the improved signal will be too small. For ensuring better coverage you need to build a booster.
To create such an element fully on your own will be rather expensive and difficult. That’s why you can buy an electronic board used for boosters (you can choose different kinds of these boards to improve the desired types of a mobile signal).
It’s very simple to connect it. While an outdoor antenna should be connected via a cable, an indoor antenna can be connected directly to the board. You will also need to use a charger 5V.
Now you can plug in your device.
It’s very important to note that to ensure the perfect functioning of this booster and avoid errors in its work, you need to install your antennas correctly. First of all, the vertical distance between both antennas must be at least 10 m. Moreover, your outdoor antenna shouldn’t be directed to the side where the indoor antenna is installed.
