How it works
The SureCall TriFlex2Go is a high-quality bidirectional booster that enhances cellular
signals for cars, motor homes, and other vehicles.
The TriFlex2Go works with two antennas:
• An inside antenna that communicates with your cell phone.
• An outside antenna that communicates with the cell tower.
Signals sent from a cell tower are received by the outside antenna, amplified by the
booster and then sent to your cell phone via the inside antenna. When your phone
transmits, the signal is sent to the inside antenna, and then sent to the cell tower via
the outside antenna. A
minimum amount of cellular reception is required for the
TriFlex2Go to work properly. Cellular signal strength is measured in dBm, an
abbreviation of the radio power per milliwatt. A minimum of -100 dBm is required.
Signal readings usually appear as a negative number (for example, -85). The stronger
the signal, the closer it gets to zero. See graph below.

Installation
Installation Steps:
Step 1. Installing your Hardware
Connect the Outside Antenna
1. Connect the magnetic outside antenna to the roof of the car in a location that:
• Is on top of the vehicle
• Has at least a 12-inch radius clear of obstructions and other radiating elements,
such as a radio antenna.
• Is at least 4-6 feet from the inside antenna.
2. Using the supplied cable, connect the outside antenna to the booster connector
marked OUTSIDE.
3. Run the outside antenna cord across the car’s roof and under the front door insulation
lining to hide and protect the antenna cable. Wrap up any loose cable
4. Hand tighten the connection
Note: The outside antenna must not be collocated or operating with any other antenna or booster.

FCC 27.50(d)(4) Statement: Fixed, mobile and portable (hand-held) stations operating in the 1720-1755 MHz band are limited 1
Watt EIRP. Fixed stations operating in this band are limited to a maximum antenna height of 10 meters above ground. Mobile and
portable stations operating in this band must employ a means for limiting power to the minimum necessary for successful communications.

Installation
Step 2. Connect the Inside Antenna
1. Mount the inside antenna so it is:
• W ithin 2-3 feet of the cell phone, or directly to the back of the cell phone.
• Mounted on a surface that is at least 4” (10cm) away from metal.
2. Using the supplied cable, connect the antenna to the booster connector marked INSIDE
3. Hand tighten the connection
Step 3. Install the Signal Booster
1. Mount the booster under the seat of the vehicle, or on the front or middle console of the
vehicle. The location you select should:
• Be away from excessive heat, direct sunlight, or moisture.
• Provide proper ventilation.
Refer to the illustration on page 7 for the following steps:
2. Connect the outside antenna cable to the signal booster connector marked OUTSIDE.
Hand-tighten the connection.
3. Connect the inside antenna cable to the signal booster connector marked INSIDE.
Hand-tighten the connection.
4. Connect the DC power cord to the signal booster. Once you’ve connected the DC power
cord to the signal booster, connect the plug on the other end of the DC power outlet to
the cigarette lighter adapter.Turn the power switch on.
• The signal booster turns on automatically.
• The Power LED lights up to show that the signal booster is ready for use.
• The Alert LEDs flash up to 15 seconds on each band to show the band is activated.
If the Power LED does not turn ON be sure the DC outlet and adapter are working and the
power switch is on.
Note: Laboratory tests show that patch antennas can work from as close as 2 ft. from the outside antenna if the patch antenna is facing away from the
outside antenna. If the alert lights blink red, showing oscillation, turn the dial of the oscillating band down 3 dBs.

If the red LED goes ON, it is the result of one of two factors.
1. More antenna separation is needed. Most likely, the easiest way to achieve this is to
move the magnetic mount antenna farther to the back of vehicle away from the inside
patch antenna.
2. Your vehicle is too close to a cell tower.
If unable to provide more antenna separation and the Alert LEDs flash after the initial
activation period, lower the dial above the blinking LED by 5dB (for example, from
50 to 40) and monitor the bars on your cell phone to see whether reception has improved.
Do not adjust the uplink and downlink dB attenuation settings more than 20dB. This could
cause a temporary shut down of the booster.
The booster case may become warm during operation. This is normal.
Press any key on your cell phone to refresh communication with the base station.
Warning. The booster is rated for 5-15V input voltage. DO NOT use the booster with a higher voltage power supply. This can damage
the booster and/or cause personal injury.

Problem
Resolution
Signal booster has no power
Verify that the booster switch is turned on.
Make sure the DC power outlet is plugged into the cigarette lighter
adapter. If the green POWER LED on the signal booster is OFF,
return the power supply to SureCall. Contact tech support at
1-888-365-6283 or [email protected], or go to www.surecall.
com and log on to online support to receive a Return Merchandise
Authorization. (RMA)
After installing your signal
booster system, you have
no signal or reception.
Double-check all signal booster and antenna cable connections.
Be sure your signal booster’s dB gain is turned up to at least 40 dB
- 45 dB on each dial.
One of the red LEDs next to
the dials on your signal booster
is flashing red.
Lower the dial above the blinking LED by 5dB (for example, from
50 to 45) and monitor the bars on your cell phone to see whether
reception has improved.
Be sure the inside panel antenna is facing away from the outside
antenna.
Use the recommended 4-6 feet of antenna separation:
Your signal booster restarted
and shut down for 15 minutes,
and is now shut down
permanently.
Each SureCall signal booster is equipped with Auto Shutdown
to prevent cell tower interference. The location where your car
is parked may be too close to a cell tower. Once away from the
original location, use the power supply switch to restart the booster
manually.
The Alert LEDs Continue to
flash
Each SureCall booster is equipped with Auto Shutdown if there’s
danger of cell tower interference. The location where your car is
parked may be too close to a cell tower. Drive to a location that
provides sufficient distance from the cell tower to prevent the booster
from automatically shutting down. Once away from the original
location, use the power supply switch to restart the booster manually.
