How it Works
Wilson amplifiers are small, portable, 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 and inbuilding applications.
When using a Wilson amplifier in conjunction with Wilson antennas, the outside
antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it through the cable to the
amplifier. Cell phones and cellular data cards (laptops) then communicate with
the improved signal. When a cell phone or cellular data card transmits, the
signal is amplified by the amplifier and broadcast back to the cell tower through
the outside antenna.

In-Vehicle
Installing a Wilson Outside Antenna
To receive the best cell signal, select a location in the center of the vehicle’s roof
at least 12 inches away from any other antennas and free of obstructions.
Follow the specific antenna installation instructions included with the outside antenna
(sold separately).
The outside antenna must be installed
vertically. Signal performance will be
degraded if the antenna is not vertical.

The antenna cable may be run through
the door to the amplifier.
For a more professional-looking
installation, the antenna cable may
be run under the door seal. 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.
The antenna cable is small enough
to easily tuck under the door seal or
plastic molding.

In-Building
Installing a Wilson Outside Antenna – In-Building
Select a location on the roof of the building to install the outside antenna that has
the most unobstructed line of sight to the cell tower.
Follow the specific antenna installation instructions included with the outside
antenna.
Lightning protection is recommended for all in-building installations. Take extreme
care to ensure neither you nor the antenna come in contact with any electrical
power lines.
A Yagi antenna must be installed horizontally with the elements vertical and the
drip hole on the bottom. Ensure there are three feet of clearance in all directions
surrounding the antenna.
To obtain maximum performance, the antenna should point toward the cell tower.
Follow the instructions included with the outside antenna.

Powering up a Wilson Amplifier
!
Warning: Verify that both the outside
antenna and the adapter extension cable are
connected to the amplifier before powering up
the amplifier.
For in-vehicle, first connect the power
cable to the amplifier input marked
“DC 12 V IN” and then insert the large
end into a 12 V DC power socket or
cigarette lighter outlet.
Carefully insert the power cable.
In-vehicle 12-volt DC power cable (included)
The amplifier may remain on all the
time; however, leaving the amplifier on
in a vehicle when it is not running can
discharge the battery in a day or two.
A good option is to power the amplifier
through the ignition switch so that
the amplifier turns off and on with the
vehicle.
For in-building, first connect the
optional AC/DC power supply to the
amplifier input labeled “DC 12 V IN”
and then into a wall outlet.
!
Warning: Use only a Wilson power
cable. Use of a non-Wilson product could
damage your equipment.
In-building AC/DC power supply (optional)
NOTE: The aluminum casing of a Wilson amplifier 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 amplifier 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
amplifier, nor do they pose a fire risk to the vehicle. As recommended in these
instructions, install the amplifier in a location with adequate ventilation, such as
under the seat, in the trunk or under the dashboard. Keep the area free of items
that could block air flow to the amplifier.

Warnings and Recommendations
Warning:
Verify that both the outside antenna and the adapter extension
cable are connected to the amplifier before powering up the
amplifier.
Warning:
RF Safety: In-vehicle - The outside antenna must be installed
with a separation of at least 16 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 amplifier. Use
of a cellular amplifier 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.
Warning:
RF Exposure Compliance: In-vehicle - All roof-mount antennas
should be centrally located on the roof of the vehicle. Glassmount antennas should be located in the middle of either the
front or back windshield. Mirror-mount antennas should be at
least six inches from the ground and leave at least 16 inches of
separation from any persons in or around the vehicle.
Warning:
RF Safety: In-Building - The outside antenna must be installed
on an outdoor permanent structure with a separation of at least
20 feet from all persons during normal operation.
Lightning protection is recommended for all in-building installations.
