How It Works
The cellular signal is received by the antenna from the cell tower, it is then transmitted
through the outdoor SC-240 cable to the 4G LTE booster, which amplifies and sends
the signal through the RG-58 cable which connects to the computer’s data cable (not
included) to your computer’s data card, sending the improved signal to your computer
through the data card. When the data card transmits, the signal goes through the data
cable, it is then sent through the RG-58 cable and amplified by the booster and
broadcast back to the cell tower through the antenna.

Package Contents:
• 4G LTE Cellular Booster
• SC-700-S-S Suction cup Antenna
• SC-288W Antenna (option)
• RG-58 6’ Cable
• RG-174 Cable
• SC-240 40’ Outdoor Cable (option)
• AC Power Adapter
• FME to SMA Adapter
Step 1. Find the area with the Strongest Signal
The signal booster requires a minimum cellular signal of low –100 dBm. Signal readings
usually appear as a negative number (for example -85). The more bars you get, the closer
the dB gets to zero. Aim for a signal close to -50dB. Signals stronger than -50dB may
cause the booster to shut down. (see the graph on the next page). If installing the
SC-288W outside antenna, find the area with the strongest cellular signal source from
your service provider by following the directions below. If you’re using the SC-700-S-S
magnetic mount antenna, find a window location near your work station with the
strongest signal. You can also go to www.antennasearch.com to find the general
location of carrier towers.
Note: You may need to change the location of your workstation to achieve the best signal.
1. Measure the strength of the existing cellular signal in various locations.
• Apple iPhones: Dial *3001#12345#* and press Call. In the top-left corner,
a dB number appears instead of bars.
• Android devices: download apps such as “Network Signal Info” in the Google Play
store to measure signal strength. Search check real signal strength to find other cell
signal measurement apps.
• Internet: go to www.speedtest.net to test 3G and 4G data rates.

that can block or reflect wireless signals (12-inch clear radius is recommended).
Connecting the Suction Mount Antenna
Installing the SC-700-S-S magnetic mount antenna
Step 1: Clean the window area that prior to adhering
the antenna base.
Step 2: Apply the suction mount base to the window
Step 3: Affix the magnetic mount SC-700-S-S Antenna
Step 4: Connect the SC-700-S-S antenna cable to the
4G LTE booster port labeled OUTSIDE
Step 5: Connect the RG58 cable to the 4G LTE port labeled
INSIDE
Step 6: Connect the RG58 cable to your computer’s data
cable (not included)
Step 7: Attach your data cable to your computers data card

Connecting to an Outdoor Antenna
Option:
Connect the Outdoor Antenna:
SureCall’s outdoor omni antenna SC-288W comes with equipment for mounting on a
vertical wall. For best results the antenna should be mounted in an upright position.
The antenna should be placed near the location you identified in the previous step for
the best possible reception. The best location will be clear of obstacles. Connect the
antenna cable to the “OUTSIDE” connector of the booster and tighten it. If using
another antenna other than a SureCall antenna, use the included adapter to connect
the cable leading from OUTSIDE connection to antenna.
Mounting the Outdoor Antenna:
Step 1: Unscrew antenna from L-mounting bracket on antenna base with hands, or
wrench, if needed.
Step 2: Using vertical plate of bracket, mark position of desired placement with pencil
or marker.
Step 3: Unscrew nut on end of stucco screw and remove it along with lock washer and
regular washer.
Step 4: Place vertical plate into desired location and tap the screws, head first, along
with sleeve into stucco 1⁄2” to 5/8” deep into place.
Step 5: In this order, place washer, lock washer and nut on each screw and tighten
until secure. When tightening screw, sleeve will expand to secure plate.
Screw antenna securely back onto horizontal plate.
Note: 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.

Warranty
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 1-888365-6283. 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.)
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.

with samples provided by SureCall. This warranty shall not apply to any products or parts thereof which have been
