Hi, I'm Mark from Germany and it's really important for me to know if I need to use an indoor antenna for my AT800 booster by AnyTone. I had a quite funny situation with my amplifier – my cat broke the internal antenna or to be more correct it bit it. When I came into the room the antenna was bitten and I can't even imagine how that 'beast' could break it. Anyway the fact of the damage is here and I have to ask you what I should do with all this.
Hello, Mark! AnyTone always saves you and your amplifier from low or weak cell phone signals and it seems to be that it's time to retrain for saving our amplifiers from pets. And to be honest your question inspired us to develop our activity and find new ways for the business solutions. Anyway you have had untypical situation with the amplifier and first of all we would like to explain the amplifier's operating principle.
Any amplifier works well with all the necessary appliances in complex. There is
- a cable,
- a power supply,
- a cell phone booster,
- two antennas (indoor and outdoor) in the kit.
So if the booster can work without user's manual, it can't work without antennas otherwise the quality of device's operating will be weak. Antenna is a integral attribute of any cell booster, so you have to take care about its safety condition. By the way the quality of cell signal doesn't depend on the direction of the internal antenna, because it's omnidirectional. According to the technical characteristics antenna for the booster is rather strong accessory and you will need a huge effort to break it. Nonetheless we suggest you to set the booster in the unreachable places for kids and pets to avoid such accidents.
Apparently the best you can do is to order a new one antenna. For that you should visit our Accessories Page where you can find several types of antennas for amplifiers. We also suggest you to order an extra antenna MA-001B for being absolutely sure about the condition of the main internal antenna. It is an antenna for ceiling mounting and compatible with every mobile phone booster by AnyTone. And it will be safety in the case of possible accidents by your pets when the main antenna will be broken again (we hope that you cat can't walk on the ceiling).
