As we all know, installing a cellular signal booster is the ultimate remedy to solve the issue of poor signal reception. If a person is experiencing low signal reception in his house, office or in his vehicle, he or she can install a booster to increase the signal strength. However, in some cases, installation of this device will not exhibit much effect. This can be because of some technical problems with the antenna or the amplifier. The following are some of the tips to check or solve the issue with the mobile signal repeater in your area.
Check The Connections
There are mainly three parts in a signal booster system, the outside antenna, the amplifier and the inside antenna. All these parts are connected with cables because every part will be located in different places. Therefore, if your signal booster system is not working properly, it is mandatory to check the cable connection because, if it is broken or loose, the system will not work effectively. It is also necessary to check whether it is stretched, because, it can cause inner breakage in cables.
Try Adjusting The Antenna
There are mainly two types of outside antenna, one has small field of work but it is effective in receiving signal from a 360 degree angle, while the other has more field area but can only receive signals within a maximum of 90 degree angle. Therefore, if a signal booster is not working properly, try adjusting the position of the outside antenna because it will receive more signals when it is placed in the direction of the mobile tower. Sometimes, elevating the position of the antenna can also solve the issue of poor signal reception.
It must be understood that the mobile signals can be interrupted by structures made of wood, glass, metal and concrete. Therefore if a person is experiencing poor signal even after installing a booster, he or she must check whether any removable structure is standing in between the booster and the tower. If there is one, try removing it. If it not movable, then change the position of the antenna to a place where such structures cannot act as a barrier.
These are some of the tricks to solve the issues related to mobile signal booster. If these methods are not showing any result, it would be better to contact a service agent to repair the system or to solve the problem.
