Wilson Electronics manufactures a wide variety of antennas to help you customize your Signal Booster
for your specific application. Several authorized antennas are shown above. See your dealer or visit
www.WilsonElectronics.com.
How it Works
Your new Wilson Signal Booster has been carefully engineered to significantly improve the performance
of your cell phone and cellular data card in mobile applications. Together with an Outside Antenna, the
Signal Booster’s state-of-the-art technology is designed to increase your signal more than 20 times,
reduces dropped calls and increase data communication rates needed for 3G technologies.
The Outside Antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the cable to the Signal
Booster. The signal is then boosted and sent to the Inside Antenna. Your cellular device then
communicates with the improved signal. When the cellular device transmits, the signal goes through
the Inside Antenna, is boosted by the Signal Booster and transmitted to the cell tower through the
Outside Antenna.
Before Getting Started
This guide will help you properly install your Wilson Electronics Dual-Band Mobile Wireless Signal
Booster. It is important to read through all of the installation steps for your particular application
prior to installing any equipment. Read through the instructions, visualize where all the equipment
will need to be installed and do a soft installation before mounting any equipment. Contact Wilson
Electronics Technical Support Team with any questions at 866-294-1660.

!
Warning: In a wireless
installation, do not plug the
Signal Booster directly into the
cell phone and/or data card
using an antenna adapter.
It may damage the Signal
Booster, cell phone and/or
data card.
!
Warning: Do not plug in the
DC power supply until the
Outside and Inside Antenna
cables are attached to the
Signal Booster.

Installing the Outside Antenna
To receive the best cell signal, select a location in the center of the vehicle’s roof 12 inches away from
any other antennas or windows. If the vehicle has a sunroof, it is important to separate the Inside and
Outside Antennas by at least five feet. This prevents the Signal Booster from overloading or oscillating.
As shown above. Follow the specific antenna installation instructions included with the Outside Antenna.
Magnet - Mount
Antenna Shown
Part #301103
Separation of the Inside and Outside Antennas is very
important. The metal roof of the vehicle acts as a barrier
and helps shield the two antennas from each other,
preventing oscillation (feedback).
The Outside Antenna must be installed vertically. Signal
performance will be degraded if the antenna is not vertical.
The antenna cable may run through the door to the Signal
Booster.
Carefully
Pull Down
Door Seal
Run Cable
Under Seal
Tuck Cable
Under Seal
For a more professional looking installation, run the
antenna cable under the door seal. The antenna cable is
small enough to easily tuck under the door seal or plastic
molding. Carefully pull down the door seal. Run the cable
through the seal and push the seal back into place. This
prevents constant wear and tear on the cable as the door
opens and closes.
!
Warning: The Outside Antenna must have a
separation of at least 20 inches from all persons
during normal operation.
!
Warning: Do not use any type of glass-mount
antenna with this Signal Booster. The Outside
and Inside Antennas must be shielded from each
other to prevent oscillation (feedback).

Installing the Low-Profile Antenna
!
Warning: Do not install the Low-Profile Antenna
within four inches of metal. (Metal found inside
the vehicle’s seat will not affect the antenna’s
performance.)
!
Warning: Do not plug in the DC power supply until
the Outside and Inside Antenna cables are attached
to the Signal Booster.
Low-Profile
Antenna
Signal Booster
Place the Low-Profile Antenna on the side of the
driver’s seat for maximum performance.
Install the Low-Profile Antenna at least eight inches,
but not more than 12 inches, from where the cellular
device will be used.
Install the Low-Profile Antenna at the same angle
as the cell phone when held in use, or place next to
the laptop’s cellular data card. This will maximize the
signal strength.
For a more professional looking installation, the LowProfile Antenna may be slid under the seat cover or
upholstery, high on the driver’s seat.
!
Warning: The Inside Antenna must be installed with
a separation of at least eight inches from all persons
and must not be located in conjunction with any other
antenna or Signal Booster.
Installing a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster
Select a location to install the Signal Booster that is away from excessive heat, direct sunlight,
moisture and has proper ventilation.
Run the cable from the Outside Antenna and attach
it to the connector labeled “Outside Antenna” on the
Signal Booster.
Attach the Low-Profile Antenna cable to the connector
labeled “Inside Antenna” on the Signal Booster.
NOTE: The aluminum casing of a Wilson 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 vehicle. As recommended in these
instructions, install the Signal Booster in a location with adequate ventilation, such as under the seat
or under the dashboard. Keep the area free of items that could block air flow to the Signal Booster.

Powering up a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster
Connect the power cable from the DC plug-in power
supply to the Signal Booster marked “6 V DC” and insert
the large end into DC power socket (the vehicle power
adapter outlet).
ON/OFF SWITCH
The Signal Booster may remain on all the time.
However, leaving the Signal Booster on in a
vehicle when it is not running can discharge
or drain the battery in a day or two. Switch the
power supply off when not in use.
A good option is to power the Signal Booster
through the ignition switch so the Signal Booster
is turned on and off with the vehicle.
IMPORTANT: Do not power up the Signal
Booster unless antenna cables are attached
to Signal Booster.
An available option to do this with is the
Hardwire Kit from Wilson Electronics.
# 859923.
Understanding the Signal Booster Lights
The power light will turn green when the Signal
Booster is successfully powered up. When the 800
MHz or 1900 MHz lights are lit green, the Signal
Booster is amplifying the outside signal.
All green lights
If one or both frequency lights turn red, oscillation
is occurring and the Signal Booster has powered
down on the frequency with the red light to prevent
oscillation. The Outside Antenna needs to be
moved farther from the Inside Antenna. Move the
Outside Antenna on the roof of the car to the rear
of the car, but at least 8-12 inches from the rear or
side windows. Disconnect power from the Signal
Booster and reconnect power. This resets the
Signal Booster.
If the lights are now green, the Signal Booster is
working properly. If the red light is still on, move the
antenna farther away and repeat the process.
Red light on frequency indicator
Always use a magnet-mount or roof-mount antenna.
Do not use a glass-mount antenna, as oscillation
may cause continuous shut-down of the Signal
Booster.
An amber light in either the 800 MHz or 1900 MHz
position indicates overload from the cell tower. The
Signal Booster has temporarily shut down and will
automatically reset when overload is no longer
detected.

Notes:
1. Nominal gain is the maximum gain at any frequency in the passband.
Average gains are: 37 dB (800 MHz uplink & downlink) 43 dB (1900 MHz uplink & downlink)
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.
