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,
M2M, marine 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. The signal is then amplified and retransmitted through the Inside Antenna into the room. Cell phones and
cellular data cards in that area then communicate with the improved
signal. When a cell phone or cellular device transmits, the signal is
received by the Inside Antenna, amplified by the Signal Booster and
transmitted back to the cell tower through the Outside Antenna.

excessive heat, direct sunlight, moisture and has proper ventilation. Do
not place the Signal Booster in an air-tight enclosure.
2. Select a location on the roof of the building to install the Outside Antenna.
Use a cell phone in test mode to find the strongest signal from the cell tower.
Refer to page 5. Visit www.WilsonElectronics.com to find the test mode
function for your particular cell phone.
3. Run the Outside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to
the connector labeled “Outside Antenna” on the Signal Booster. Run the
Inside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to the connector
labeled “Inside Antenna” on the Signal Booster. Refer to page 8 for more
information on running cable. Lightning Surge Protection is recommended
for all in-building installations refer to page 6.
4. Select a location for the Inside Antenna, preferably in the center of
where the signal needs to be amplified. A minimum separation distance
of 20 vertical feet (within the null zone) or 50 horizontal feet is
necessary for proper operation. If the inside coverage is not sufficient
you may need as much as 75 feet of horizontal separation (refer to
installation diagram on pages 3 & 4).
5. Before powering up the Signal Booster, verify that both the Outside
Antenna and the Inside Antenna are connected and check that all
connections are tight. Refer to page 9. Note: Be careful when plugging

Reasons for Weak Cellular Signals
Anyone who uses a cell phone or cellular data card knows the frustration
of not being able to connect to or maintain a strong cellular signal. When
this occurs, it is generally due to one of two reasons:
1. Location of the Nearest Cell Tower – Cell towers are situated to
provide broad coverage; however, there are many areas in which
signal strength may be reduced by topographic features or by local
government restrictions on the height or placement of the towers
themselves. Rural areas generally have fewer cell towers than urban
regions.
2. Natural and Man-Made Obstructions – Signal strength can also
be negatively affected by trees, hills, buildings, weather, and other
obstructions. You may be relatively close to a cell tower but still unable
to make a call. This often occurs in homes, offices and other buildings
in which stucco, concrete or metal walls may block the signal.
The Signal Booster works with two antennas. The Inside Antenna
communicates with your cell phone and the Outside Antenna communicates
with the cell tower. The Outside Antenna receives the cell tower signal and
sends it through the cable to the Signal Booster, where it is amplified and
transmitted through the Inside Antenna into the room. When the Inside
Antenna picks up a signal from your cellular device, the Signal Booster
amplifies that signal and transmits it through the cable, then through the
Outside Antenna and back to the cell tower.
Note: The Signal Booster will only operate if there is an adequate signal to amplify.

Outside Antenna Installation
The antenna should be mounted as shown in the illustration above.
The mounting bracket, included with antenna, is adjustable and will
accommodate pipe diameters from 1.25” to 2” (pipe sold separately
#901117). Mount the antenna so that there is at least 3 feet of clearance
in all directions around it. Position the antenna so that it has an
unobstructed line of sight to the cell tower’s strongest signal. Make sure

or email: [email protected] Mon.- Fri. Hours: 7 am to 6 pm MST.
the antenna is not pointing across your own roof or at the Inside Antenna
as this will cause the oscillation protection circuitry to shut down the
Signal Booster.
Warning: Lightning protection is recommended for all installations
(#859902-50 Ohm shown below). Take extreme care to ensure that neither you nor the antenna comes near any electric power lines.
Installing Lightning Protection (sold separately)
Install the Lightning Surge
Protector (LSP) close to the Signal
Booster. Attach the cable from
the Outside Antenna to the surge
protector, using a short length of
low loss cable; attach one end
to the LSP and the other to the
Outside Antenna connector on the
Signal Booster. Ensure the LSP is
properly grounded (ground wire not
included). LSP sold separately, go
to www.WilsonElectronics.com or
call 800-204-4104 to order.

Selecting a Direction for the Outside Antenna
Before selecting a location on the roof of the building to install the
Outside Antenna, see page 7 for additional instructions. Use a cell phone
in test mode to find the strongest signal from the cell tower (refer to page
5 for more information). To get the strongest signal possible, it is very
important to set up your Outside Antenna properly. The Inside and the
Outside Antenna must be mounted in such a way that they are able to
pick up the best possible cell signal on the outside of the building and
provide the best possible signal on the inside of the building. Mount the
Outside Antenna as high as possible facing the cell tower in an area with
the best possible signal coverage.
Note: Never point the front of a directional antenna toward the Inside Antenna. See Figures 1 & 2 on page 10.

or email: [email protected] Mon.- Fri. Hours: 7 am to 6 pm MST.

Finding the Strongest Signal
When installing your Signal Booster’s Outside Antenna, aiming it towards
the best signal source from you service provider is important. The
best way of getting the strongest signal is to have one person on the
roof to rotate the Outside Antenna, which is connected to the Signal
Booster. Turnt the Outside Antenna about 45 degrees at a time, while the
second person is watching the signal strength on the phone inside the
building. This allows you to read the signal strength from the cell tower.
It is preferable to have the phone in the test mode so the actual signal
strength can be read, as bars are not the most accurate. Go to
www.WilsonElectronics.com for help in finding the test mode for your
phone. Always make sure the person inside the building gives the signal
time to arrive and register on the phone (between 10-30 seconds for
phone to reset to the signal reading).

Mounting Tips for Running Outside
Antenna Cable
If you are mounting the Outside Antenna on the roof of your building, we
have found that it is easiest to run your cable underneath the down side
of your roof’s flashing. If you have satellite TV service installed you may
be able to follow the same route as the satellite TV cables that are already
running from outside of your building to the inside.
After routing the cable, we recommend sealing any areas where the cable
passes into the building with cable bushings, silicone or a silicone-type
sealant to keep your installation from leaking. If you are mounting the
Outside Antenna to the outside wall of your home or building, the simplest
way is to run the cable on the outside of the wall and attach it to the
exterior of your home or office. Then drill a hole through the wall where you
want the cable to appear on the inside of the building. Before drilling, make
sure that there are no electrical outlets, sewer or water pipes, or electrical
wiring in the wall that you are about to drill through as this could potentially
harm you or damage the building.
After drilling the required hole, run the cable through and seal it with
cable bushings or a silicone-type sealant to enclose the hole that you
have created. In some instances, it may be possible to run the cable up
into the fascia of the attic overhang. In this circumstance, the cable will
be accessible in the attic for further routing.
Installing the Inside Antenna
(Instructions are for optional Panel Antenna)
Select a location for the Inside Antenna, preferably in the center of where
the signal needs to be amplified. A minimum separation distance of 20
vertical feet (within the null zone) or 50 horizontal feet is necessary
for proper operation. If the inside coverage is not sufficient you may
need as much as 75 feet of horizontal separation. Refer to installation
diagram on pages 3 & 4.

In some cases, multiple Inside Antennas may be required, for instance if
you have multiple rooms with poor signal. A signal may be split by using
a splitter (sold separately). If using more than one Inside Antenna, a
separation up to 75 horizontal feet may be necessary between Inside
Antennas. Refer to the configuration on pages 3 & 4.

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. Do not
place the Signal Booster in an air-tight enclosure. Recommended
installation locations for in-building Signal Boosters are near a power
outlet and in a closet or on a shelf.
Note: It is important to have adequate air ventilation. Maintain at least 6 inches of clearance from surrounding objects. Be careful when plugging the connector in so as not to damage the center pins on the connectors.
Run the Outside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to
the connector labeled “Outside Antenna” on the Signal Booster. Run the
Inside Antenna cable to the Signal Booster and attach it to the connector
labeled “Inside Antenna” on the Signal Booster.
Note: For distances of 20 feet or more, use Wilson low loss cable.
Note: It is very important to power your Signal Booster using a surge protected AC Power Strip with at least a 1000 Joule rating. Failure to do this will void your warranty in the event of a power surge or lightning strike.

Understanding the Signal Booster Lights,
LCD Screen and Troubleshooting
During installation mode the Signal Booster is resetting itself very quickly
to aid the installer. The Signal Booster is equipped with two indicator lights
shown in Figure 8 on page 14. For the first 15 minutes that the booster is
plugged in, it is programmed for a test and alignment period. During this
time, the light and the LCD will do one of the following 4 things:
Note: If after the initial 15 minutes you are not done with the installation, the Signal Booster can be reset and enter installation mode again by disconnecting and reconnecting the power supply from the booster.
1. Blinking Green
If the Signal Booster is blinking green, the Signal Booster is operating
properly. If you are happy with the coverage area in your building, then
you are done. Blinking will stop after the 15 minute installation period.
2. LCD SCREEN Overload
If the LCD screen displays
Figure 6
“OVERLOAD,” (see Figure 6) the
Signal Booster has automatically
reduced gain to protect a nearby
cell tower. First turn the appropriate
gain control knob until the
“OVERLOAD” is replaced by the
normal LCD screen (see Figure

Warnings and Recommendations
Warning: The Outside Antenna must always be located so the back
or side points to the Inside Antenna. Never point the front
of the Outside Antenna toward the Inside Antenna – this is
to prevent oscillation.

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.
