How It Works
Wilson Electronics Outdoor Panel Antenna will collect the cell tower signal and send it
through the cable to a Signal Booster, cell phone or data card. When the cellular device
transmits, the signal is transferred to a Signal Booster or directly to the antenna and
broadcasted back to the cell tower.

Antenna Installation
The antenna should be mounted as shown in the illustration above. The included
mounting bracket is adjustable and will accommodate pipe diameters from 1.25” to 2”
(pipe sold separately Part# 901117). Mount the antenna so that there is at least 3 feet of
clearance in front and sides. Position the antenna so that it has the most unobstructed
line of sight to the cellular service provider’s strongest signal. If you are using a wireless
Signal Booster, make sure the antenna is not pointing across your own roof.
Warning: Lightning protection is recommended for all installations (Wilson
Electronics Part #859902). Take extreme care to ensure that neither you nor the
antenna comes near any electric power lines.

Adjusting the Antenna for Maximum Performance
To adjust the antenna for best performance, connect it to your cell phone with an
external adapter and a length of cable. External Antenna Adapters and cables are
sold separately. Put the cell phone in test mode and turn the antenna in 10-degree
increments while checking the cell phone’s signal level. At each point you may need
to wait a few seconds as your cell phone updates. To find your phone’s test mode, visit Signal readings usually appear as a negative number (for
example, -86). The larger the number, the more powerful the signal (-75 is stronger than
-84). See graph below.

Once you have obtained the strongest signal, fully tighten the mounting hardware. After
the Signal Booster and the rest of the system is installed and performing correctly,
weatherproof all connections.
Important: If you are using a wireless Signal Booster, be sure the antenna is not
pointing across the building in which you are trying to get coverage. The antenna
should point away from the building to help prevent oscillation (feedback).
Ultra low loss cable is recommended for lengths 20’ or greater to prevent significant signal
loss. Wilson Electronics offers WILSON 400 cable in several lengths from 20-100 feet.
Wilson Electronics also offers a wide range of phone adapters to connect your cell phone
to a Signal Booster or directly to the antenna. To find the adapter for your phone, visit or call toll free 866-294-1660.
Antenna Adapter
An 18-inch external adapter may be required to connect the cell phone directly to the
antenna. The external adapter is cell phone specific and may be purchased through a
local retailer. Refer to Wilson Electronics Adapter Guide to identify the right adapter for
your cell phone or cellular data card. The Adapter Guide is available through a local
retailer. It is also available on our web site,, or you may call
