How it Works
Your new Wilson Electronics signal booster has been carefully engineered to significantly
improve the performance of your cell phone or cellular data card in mobile applications.
Together with an outside antenna (sold separately), the signal booster’s state-of-the-art
technology is designed to increase your signal up to 10 times, reduce disconnects and
dropouts, 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 cell phone
or data card then communicates with the improved signal. When the cell phone or data card
transmits, the signal goes through the inside antenna, is boosted by the signal booster and
broadcast back to the cell tower through the outside antenna.
Wilson Electronics manufactures a wide variety of antennas to help you customize your
signal booster for your specific application. Several are shown below. See your dealer or
visit www.wilsonelectronics.com.
NOTE: Use of this signal booster
with an antenna gain higher than
5.12 dBi is in violation of FCC
regulations for which the
offender is fully liable. All
Wilson mobile antennas are
5.12 dBi or less in the 800
MHz band.

Installing a Wilson Electronics Outside Antenna
To receive the best cell signal, select a location in the center of the vehicle’s roof at least
20 inches away from any other antennas and free of obstructions.
Follow the specific antenna installation instructions included with the outside antenna
(sold separately).
Warning: The outside antenna must be installed with a separation of at least 20 inches from any
of the vehicle’s occupants or nearby persons and must not be located or operating in
conjunction with any other antenna or signal booster.
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.
The outside antenna must be installed
vertically. Signal performance will be
degraded if the antenna is not vertical.

inches from where the cell phone or cellular
data card will be used.
Low-profile
Antenna
!
Signal Booster
Warning: Do not install the low-profile
antenna within 4 inches of metal. (Metal found
inside the vehicle’s seat will not affect the
antenna’s performance.)
Place the inside antenna on the side of the
driver’s seat for maximum performance.
Install the inside antenna at least 8 inches,
but not more than 12 inches, from where
the cell phone or cellular data card will be
used.
Install the inside 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 low-profile antenna may be slid under
the seat cover or leather, high on the
driver’s seat.
!
Warning: The inside antenna must be
installed with a separation of at least 8 inches
from all persons and must not be located in
conjunction with any other antenna or signal
booster.

Powering up a Wilson Electronics Signal Booster
Make sure both the outside and inside
antenna cables are connected before
powering up the signal booster.
Connect the DC plug-in power supply
cable to the signal booster marked “Power”
and insert the large end into DC power
socket (the vehicle DC power adapter
outlet.)
Carefully insert the power cable.
!
Warning: Use only the power
supply cable provided in this package.
The power supply must be 12 V DC.
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 the battery in a day or two.
IMPORTANT: Do not power up the signal
booster unless antenna cables are attached
to signal booster.
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.
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.
Separation of 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.
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.
Distance between antennas
through a sunroof must be
5 feet or more.

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.
5. The term “IC” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications were met.
