How it Works
Wilson Electronics Signal Boosters are bi-directional devices that deliver service levels
consistent with what would be expected in areas of high cell network coverage. They
amplify a weak or shadowed signal in mobile, marine, M2M and in-building applications.
When using a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster in conjunction with Wilson Electronics
antennas, the Outside Antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the
cable to the Signal Booster. Cell phones and cellular data cards then communicate with
the improved signal. When a cellular device transmits, the signal is amplified by the Signal
Booster and transmitted back to the cell tower through the Outside Antenna.
Installing the External Adapter
An external adapter is required to connect the cell phone or cellular data card to the Signal
Booster. The external adapter is cell phone/data card-specific and may be purchased
through a local retailer. Refer to Wilson Electronics Adapter Guide to identify the correct
adapter for your cell phone or cellular data card. The adapter guide is available through a
local retailer or at www.WilsonElectronics.com. The external adapter plugs into the antenna
extension cable (included) and directly into a socket on the cellular device.
The external adapter and the extension cable are long enough to reach the Signal Booster
location. This allows for ease and convenience of use. Run the extension cable from the
external adapter and attach it to the connector labeled “Cellular Phone or Data Card” on the
Signal Booster.
!
Warning: Verify that both the Outside
Antenna and the adapter extension cable
are connected to the Signal Booster before
powering up the Signal Booster.
!
Warning: Use only a Wilson Electronics
power supply. Use of a non-Wilson Electronics
product could damage your equipment. It is
recommended that all AC power supplies for
home electronics be plugged into a Surge
Protector Power Strip.
Testing a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster
To test your Signal Booster, go to a weak signal area where your cell phone registers only
1-2 bars without the Signal Booster turned on. Then, connect the Signal Booster to the
phone and you should see a signal improvement of 2 or more bars. Note: Many phones
take up to 30 seconds to reset the bar indicator.
Installing the Mounting Plate
(sold separately)
To purchase a mounting plate call Wilson Electronics Sales Team 800-204-4104.
(PN# 901138)
Remove two screws from back of Signal Booster that
correspond with the mounting plate.
NOTE: Depending on your specific cell phone, the adapter socket may be located beneath
a rubber plug.
Place Signal Booster on mounting plate and reinstall the two
screws previously removed from back of Signal Booster.
Installing a Wilson Electronics Outside Antenna
Select a location on the top of the structure to install the Outside Antenna that has the most
unobstructed line of sight to the cell tower. To obtain maximum performance, the antenna
should point toward the cell tower. Follow the instructions included with the Outside
Antenna and the RF Safety Warning (page 5). Run the cable from the Outside Antenna and
attach it to the connector labeled “Outside Antenna” on the Signal Booster.
Lightning protection is recommended for all stationary installations (sold separately). Take
extreme care to ensure neither you nor the antenna come in contact with any electrical power
lines. Ensure there are at least three feet of clearance in all directions surrounding the
antenna.
Installing a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster
Select a location to install the Signal Booster that is away from excessive heat, direct
sunlight, moisture and that has proper ventilation. Ensure the Signal Booster is installed
within six feet of where the cell phone or cellular data card will be used (to accommodate
the six-foot adapter extension cable).

Warnings and Recommendations
Warning:
Verify that both the Outside Antenna and the adapter extension cable are
connected to the Signal Booster before powering up the Signal Booster.
Warning:
Use only the power supply provided in this package. Use of a non-WIlson
Electronics products may damage your equipment.
Warning:
RF Safety: All omni-directional antennas shown on page 1 must be
installed so that the distance from the antenna to any person is no less
than 8 inches. All Yagi antennas shown on page 1 must be installed
so that the distance from the antenna to any person is no less than 26
inches. Yagi antennas may not be used indoors or in a mobile installation.
Please contact Wilson Electronics Technical Support Team for safe
distances from other antennas.
Lightning protection is recommended for all in-building installations.
It is recommended to verify that outside building antenna installations comply with relevant
electrical codes (e.g. National Electrical Code).
NOTE: The aluminum casing of a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster will adjust very quickly
to the ambient temperature of its environment. For example, in the summer, when the
inside of a car can reach 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the Signal Booster temperature may be
150 degrees or higher. The casing will be hot to the touch, similar to a metal door handle or
a steering wheel. Such high temperatures will not damage the Signal Booster, nor do they
pose a fire risk to the structure. As recommended in these instructions, install the Signal
Booster in a location with adequate ventilation. Keep the area free of items that could block
air flow to the Signal Booster. Do not install the Signal Booster in direct sunlight.

Notes:
1. Nominal gain is the maximum gain at any frequency in the passband.
2. Nominal bandwidth is the difference between two frequencies that are adjacent to the passband where the amplification is 20 dB
lower than the passband amplification. One of the frequencies is lower than the passband and the other is higher.
3. The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation. For situations when multiple carrier
signals are present, the rating would have to be reduced by 3.5 dB, especially where the output signal is re-radiated and can
cause interference to adjacent band users. This power reduction is to be by means of input power or gain reduction and not by an
attenuator at the output of the device.
4. The maximum power for 2 or more simultaneous signals will be reduced by 6 dB every time the number of signals is doubled.
