On the cell phone antenna system setup.You should make sure the outside connectors are thoroughly sealed. There is some stuff called liquid tape. Us ham radio operators use it on all exterior connectors to keep rain water out. Secondly, on the power to the amplaphyer, I would suggest investing in a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) like you use on a good computer setup. That will prevent any power spikes and also a little backup power for short power losses.Ed GabbardKD5DPKAltus Oklahoma
Typically cell phone boosters are only used when you have a weak signal that goes in and out (dropped calls). If you have no signal then this product is not recommended because even if you get a signal then likely it will not be a reliable one.

Bones An easy way to check if you have signal is to use your cell phone in the place that you'll place the antenna and see if it consistently has at least 2 bars of service (meaning it doesn't fluctuate or you lose bars completely). If you have consistent signal, then a cell phone booster solution will work for you.
Do you know of any signal strength checker devices to determine if there is any signal at all before making a $$$ commitment to purchase a booster?
Hey! Loved the video...probably going to do the project. I live in Chile and our houses are made of concrete (earthquake resistant). I have the following questions.
1) Does the system work for concrete houses?2) I live on a house on a mountain side, so there are many floors....Should I install the indoor antenna at the lowest point of the house?
