It can be fruitless to try to get phone signal reception when you are out driving in remote areas. Aside from no available signal, it might be that your car or large buildings are getting in the way of your cell phone's signal. If you are experiencing a lot of dropped calls or have difficulty getting a cell phone signal, you can install a cell phone signal booster to increase and extend your cell phone range. Installation is quick and easy and can save you a lot of frustration in the future.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Identify an area on your car that provides the best signal. You can use your cell phone to test the reception of the different areas of the car.

  2. 2

    Mount the bracket and install the antenna so that it is standing straight up from the installation point. Keep it at least 3 feet away from your car's air conditioning unit and pipes.

  3. 3

    Attach the coaxial cable that comes with the booster kit to the bottom of the signal antenna. Route the other end of the cable through your window and attach it to a base unit that must be kept indoors. Be sure that the antenna is kept at a 90-degree angle to the base unit.

  4. 4

    Connect the power supply of the antenna to the base unit and test the reception.
