Safety
1.4 - How Cellular Signal Boosters Work
The Force7 booster amplifies cellular signals from the nearest tower to phones in a
building and from those phones back to the tower to compensate for weak reception
caused by distance, topography, building structure, and/or other reasons. The booster
receives the signal from an outside antenna, amplifies that signal, and then rebroadcasts
it via the interior antenna(s) where it is picked up by cellular phones, modems, and data
cards. The interior antennas also pick up signals from cellular devices and pass them to
the booster. The booster amplifies these signals and passes them to the exterior antenna
for rebroadcast back to the tower.

Planning
CHAPTER 3: Planning
3.1 - Overview
The general booster installation process follows these steps:
1. Decide where to mount the exterior antenna. This will generally be on the wall or roof of the
building in the location with the strongest signal. You will need to decide whether to use an
omnidirectional antenna mounted vertically or a directional Yagi antenna pointed directly at the
cellular tower (line of sight). You must also consider attaching a grounded lightning protector
between the exterior antenna and the booster.
2. Decide where to mount the interior antenna(s), being sure to take separation requirements into
account. In general, long narrow spaces will benefit most from directional flat-panel antennas while
more square spaces will benefit more from omnidirectional dome antennas.
3. Decide where to mount the booster. This should be in a secure indoor location near a grounded
power source.
4. Decide where to route the cables between the exterior antenna and the booster and between the
booster and interior antennas.
5. Install the antennas as described in their respective Installation Manuals.
6. Route the cables to the booster location.
7. Install the booster as described in this manual.
8. Power on the booster and perform the configuration and testing as described in this manual.

Planning
3.2 - Exterior Antenna
You may use either an omni-directional antenna such as the SC-288W (for flat areas with no
obstructions) or a directional Yagi antenna such as the SC-230W (to point directly at the tower). The
omni-directional antenna receives and transmits signals in a horizontal 360° circle while the Yagi
antenna receives and transmits signals in a focused area and must be aimed directly (line of sight)
toward the cellular tower that provides the best signal to the building.
The exterior antenna and mast (if any) must be mounted in a location that meets all of the following
criteria:
•
Best signal strength
•
Not co-located with other antennas or used in conjunction with other antennas
•
Away from all power lines
•
6 feet from lightning rod antennas
•
24 inches from all persons
These distances are general guidelines only; refer to the applicable building and electrical codes in
your area to determine local requirements.
•
The HDTV antenna can be mounted a few feet away at this time

Planning
3.3 - Interior Antennas
You may use any combination of omnidirectional (dome) interior antennas needed to obtain optimal signal strength throughout the building or installation area. Dome antennas such as the
SC-222W-TNC provide 360° hemispherical coverage suitable for mostly square areas. The following
example uses two dome antennas to provide full coverage (exterior Yagi antenna also shown):
Keep in mind that floor structures in multistory buildings can cause significant signal loss, which
means that you may need to install interior antennas on more than one floor. Here is an example of
a multistory installation:
8
SureCall | 48346 Milmont Drive, Fremont CA 94538 | 1-888-365-6283 | [email protected]
Planning
Note: You may or may not need antennas on every floor of a multistory building depending on factors
such as building material, booster gain, etc.
3.4 - Antenna Separation
Proper antenna separation is essential in order to prevent signal oscillation (feedback) that can
interfere with the cellular tower. Separation is measured in a straight line from the exterior antenna to
the closest interior antenna. The closest allowable distance depends on a number of factors such as
booster gain level, building material, etc. Recommended separation distances are:
Amplifier gain
40 dB
45 dB
50 dB
55 dB
65 dB
70 dB
75 dB
80 dB
Minimum separation (ad)
5-6 ft.
15-20 ft.
50 ft.
60 ft.
75-80 ft.
100 ft.
100-120 ft.
120-180 ft.
Note: Vertical separation is more important than horizontal separation. If you are unable to obtain
the required separation horizontally, try raising the exterior antenna. You may also try reducing the
booster gain as described in Chapter 5 of this manual.

9
Planning
If you are using a Yagi exterior antenna, you should normally aim it away from all interior antennas
regardless of separation to prevent oscillation.
CAUTION: SIGNAL OSCILLATION CAN CAUSE RADIO
INTERFERENCE WITH CELLULAR TOWERS AND RESULT IN CIVIL AND/OR CRIMINAL PENALTIES.
3.5 Calculating Signal Strength
You can calculate the number of antennas you will need using the following parameters (in dB):
•
Outside signal level (OSL): This is the signal strength at the exterior antenna location and will
always be a negative number that will usually fall between -50 and -100 dBm. Calls will drop at
levels of about -100 dB and lower. A system installed in an area where the signal is -85 or worse
will require some detailed engineering to achieve an acceptable solution.
•
Outside antenna gain (OAG): This is the signal boost provided by the exterior antenna and is
always a positive number with SureCall antennas.

Planning
3.6 - Booster Location
Select an indoor location for the booster that meets the following criteria:
•
Wall or ceiling mounts are acceptable
•
Near a properly grounded 110 VAC outlet
•
Not in a tightly enclosed or overly hot space
•
All power, dip switches and warning lights easily visible
•
Least amount of cable to connect all antennas
3.7 - Accessories
The final step in the planning process is to make sure you have all of the necessary accessories to
complete the installation. You will need all of the items listed in Chapter 1 of this manual plus some or
all of the following:
•
Cable clips: Use these to secure the cables to interior and exterior walls/ceilings.
•
Appropriately rated sealant/caulking: Use this to waterproof the opening where the cable from the
exterior antenna enters the building, if needed.
•
Hand and/or power tools: As needed to complete the installation.
•
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Use all PPE required by local codes and/or best practices
to help ensure personal safety during installation.
Note: You may need to obtain a permit from your local building department to install the booster and
antennas. Check your local building and/or electrical codes.
CAUTION: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING

17
Configuration and Testing
Each bank of DIP switches contain five switches.
•
Turning a switch OFF increases booster gain for the selected channel.
•
Turning that switch ON decreases booster gain for the selected channel.
From left to right, the DIP switches in each bank provide 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 dB of attenuation
(reduced amplification). These switches are cumulative, meaning that the total amount of attenuation
for a channel is equal to the combined dB of all ON DIP switches in the corresponding bank. For
example:
•
Turning all switches OFF = 0 dB attenuation
(booster is at full gain).
•
Turning ON Switch #1 in a bank = 1 dB
attenuation (booster maximum gain is reduced
by 1 dB).
•
Turning ON Switches #1, 3, and 5 in a bank =
1+4+16 dB attenuation = 21 dB attenuation.

For example, in an 80 dB booster, this means the selected channel would be reduced to 59 dB
(80 dB -21 dB).
•
Turning ON all switches in a bank = 1+2+4+8+16 dB attenuation = 31 dB
attenuation
For example, in an 80 dB booster, that means that the selected channel would be
reduced to 49 dB (80 dB-31 dB).
When the booster is powered on:
•
The green Power light (5) should illuminate.
•
If any of the bands are oscillating, the corresponding band lights will flash red and
the corresponding band(s) will shut off.
Note: When the booster is turned on, the band lights will flash red and yellow for
approximately 10 seconds.

SureCall | 48346 Milmont Drive, Fremont CA 94538 | 1-888-365-6283 | [email protected]
Configuration and Testing
5.2 - Initial Configuration
By default, your booster ships with all DIP switches turned OFF to provide maximum gain in all
channels. This should always be your starting point whenever installing or reinstalling the booster.
5.3 - Powering on the Booster
To power on the booster:
1. Make sure that exterior and interior antenna cables are firmly connected to the proper ports on
the booster.
2. Plug a surge suppressor into a grounded 110 VAC wall outlet.
3. Plug the AC end of the supplied power adapter into the surge suppressor.
4. Plug the DC end of the power adapter into the Power port on the booster.
5. Verify that the green Power light is illuminated.
CAUTION: ONLY USE THE POWER SUPPLY INCLUDED
WITH THE BOOSTER. USE OF ANOTHER POWER
SUPPLY COULD DAMAGE THE BOOSTER AND/OR
POWER SUPPLY.
CAUTION: DO NOT PROCEED BEYOND THIS POINT
UNTIL THE BOOSTER IS POWERED ON AND NO RED
WARNING LIGHTS ARE ILLUMINATED.
5.4 – Testing
Once the booster is powered on and no Warning lights are illuminated, walk around the entire area to
test the voice and/or data signal. Refine the antenna locations and/or gain levels as needed, and then
complete the permanent installation once the system is working as desired.
5.5 - Adjusting the Booster
Keep the following points in mind when adjusting the booster:
•
Full power is not always your best option. Your goal is to obtain a usable cellular signal in as
many areas of the building as possible. A successful installation means that you can make calls
without dropping and/or have a reliable data connection.
SureCall | 48346 Milmont Drive, Fremont CA 94538 | 1-888-365-6283 | [email protected]
19
Configuration and Testing
•
Do not expect to see 5 bars of reception everywhere in the building as this is practically
impossible. Also, signal strength in dB can vary significantly without necessarily affecting the
number of bars displayed because different phone and data card manufacturers handle bars
slightly differently.
•
A good rule of thumb is that increasing gain by 6 dB doubles the coverage distance of the
interior antennas. Start at the lowest gain setting and increase gain gradually as needed.
•
If one or more red Warning lights comes on, that indicates that there’s oscillation in that band
and the band will immediately shut down. If the dB gain is not adjusted, the Warning light will
continue flashing. The booster will power down and will then wake every 30 seconds for the next
15 minutes to see if the problem has been resolved. If the problem hasn’t been resolved after 15
minutes the band will shut off and the booster will need to be turned off and turned back on to
reset.
•
You may see oscillation in any of the bands (see Section 5.6).
•
If you can’t get the system to work properly, you may need to install an additional interior
antenna and/or a different type of interior antenna and/or relocate interior antennas.
Note: In general, the uplink and downlink DIP switches should be set identically but this is not always
the case.
5.6 - Automatic Shutdown
If equipped, the Force7 booster includes an automatic shutdown feature that works in the following
sequence:
1. When oscillation is detected in the uplink and/or downlink, the appropriate Warning light(s) will
begin flashing red and the Power light (light 5 in the diagram on Page 18) remain green.
2. If oscillation occurs on any other band, lights 6 and/or 7, 8, 9, and 10 will blink as appropriate.
3. If the electrical current powering the booster is too weak or too strong the lights will blink yellow.
4. If the problem is not resolved, the affected side will shut down for 30 seconds.
5. The booster will wake back up. When this occurs, the power light will be green. If oscillation
resumes, the lights will flash as previously described. These 30-second cycles will continue for
15 minutes or until the problem is resolved.
6. If the problem is not resolved within 15 minutes, the booster will shut down (all lights off except
the Power light, which is green) and must be reset by unplugging it from the power supply and
plugging it back in.
20
SureCall | 48346 Milmont Drive, Fremont CA 94538 | 1-888-365-6283 | [email protected]
Configuration and Testing
To resolve oscillation, increase the antenna separation (Section 3.4) and/or the attenuation
(Section 5.1). Each band on the booster works independently from other bands. Therefore, Band
lights will react accordingly.
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.
La puissance de sortie nominale indiquée par le fabricant pour cet appareil concerne son fonctionnement avec
porteuse unique. Pour des appareils avec porteuses multiples, on doit réduire la valeur nominale de 3,5 dB, surtout
si le signal de sortie est retransmis et qu’il peut causer du brouillage aux utilisateurs de bandes adjacentes. Une
telle réduction doit porter sur la puissance d’entrée ou sur le gain, et ne doit pas se faire au moyen d’un atténuateur
raccordé à la sortie du dispositif.

CHAPTER 7: Warranty
This chapter contains the warranty information for your SureCall product and also contains information
on how to contact the company.
7.1 - Warranty Periods
Your warranty includes the following periods:
•
Three-Year Product Warranty: SureCall products are covered under a three-year product warranty
from the date of purchase. This protects the customer from any defects or problems the product
may have that are solely the fault of SureCall. Incorrect installation or misuse will void this warranty.
Upon the return of a defective product, SureCall will issue the customer a working replacement. All
returned packages should contain all products distributed.
•
Five-Year Extended Product Warranty: A five year warranty is available for purchase on any
products sold by SureCall. A five-year warranty must be obtained at the time of purchase. This
warranty adds an additional two years to the three year warranty we provide. All regulations still
apply.

Three-Year Product Warranty
SureCall warrants its products for three years from the date of purchase against defects in workmanship and/or materials.
Specifications are subject to change. The three-year warranty only applies to products meeting the latest FCC Certification
Guidelines stated on 2/20/2013 and going into effect April 30, 2014. A two-year warranty applies to any products manufactured
before May 1, 2014.
Products returned by customers must be in their original, un-modified condition, shipped in the original or protective packaging
with proof-of-purchase documentation enclosed, and a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number printed clearly on the
outside of the shipping container.
Buyers may obtain an RMA number for warranty returns by calling the SureCall Return Department toll-free at 1-888-365-6283.
Any returns received by SureCall without an RMA number clearly printed on the outside of the shipping container will be
returned to sender. In order to receive full credit for signal boosters, all accessories originally included in the signal booster
box must be returned with the signal booster. (The Buyer does not need to include accessories sold in addition to the signal
booster, such as antennas or cables.)

Warranty
This warranty does not apply to any product determined by SureCall to have been subjected to misuse, abuse, neglect, or
mishandling that alters or damages the product’s physical or electronic properties.
SureCall warrants to the Buyer that each of its products, when shipped, will be free from defects in material and workmanship,
and will perform in full accordance with applicable specifications. The limit of liability under this warranty is, at SureCall’s option,
to repair or replace any product or part thereof which was purchased up to THREE YEARS after May 1, 2014 or TWO
YEARS for products purchased before May 1, 2014, as determined by examination by SureCall, prove defective in material
and/or workmanship. Warranty returns must first be authorized in writing by SureCall. Disassembly of any SureCall product by
anyone other than an authorized representative of SureCall voids this warranty in its entirety. SureCall reserves the right to make
changes in any of its products without incurring any obligation to make the same changes on previously delivered products.
As a condition to the warranties provided for herein, the Buyer will prepay the shipping charges for all products returned to
SureCall for repair, and SureCall will pay the return shipping with the exception of products returned from outside the United
States, in which case the Buyer will pay the shipping charges.
The Buyer will pay the cost of inspecting and testing any goods returned under the warranty or otherwise, which are found to
meet the applicable specifications or which are not defective or not covered by this warranty.
Products sold by SureCall shall not be considered defective or non-conforming to the Buyer’s order if they satisfactorily fulfill the
performance requirements that were published in the product specification literature, or in accordance with samples provided
by SureCall. This warranty shall not apply to any products or parts thereof which have been subject to accident, negligence,
alteration, abuse, or misuse. SureCall makes no warranty whatsoever in respect to accessories or parts not supplied by it.
Limitations of Warranty, Damages and Liability:
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, GUARANTEES, OR
REPRESENTATIONS AS TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHER WARRANTIES,
CONDITIONS, GUARANTEES, OR REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, IN LAW OR IN FACT, ORAL OR
IN WRITING. SURECALL AGGREGATE LIABILITY IN DAMAGES OR OTHERWISE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PAYMENT, IF ANY,
RECEIVED BY CELLPHONE-MATE, INC. FOR THE UNIT OF PRODUCT OR SERVICE FURNISHED OR TO BE FURNISHED,
AS THE CASE MAY BE, WHICH IS THE SUBJECT OF CLAIM OR DISPUTE. IN NO EVENT SHALL SURECALL BE LIABLE FOR
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, HOWSOEVER CAUSED.
All matters regarding this warranty shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, and any controversy that
cannot be settled directly shall be settled by arbitration in California in accordance with the rules then prevailing of the American Arbitration
Association, and judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If one or more provisions
provided herein are held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then such provision shall be ineffective and excluded to the
extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without affecting in any way the remaining provisions hereof.
