I would like to know about this antenna and rg-8 coaxial cable. I live in Delhi. Actually I'm getting signal of mtnl 3g on the roof of first floor (either 3 or 4 bars out of 5, mostly 4).. But no 3g signal either on ground floor or on first floor.. So I would like to know the cheap solution for this problem.. All suggestions are heartily welcomed..mega_processor said:yes mobile signal boosters are a boon if you are operating from basement.But the prices are high.say a single band booster comes at around 20k.Now businessmen have to decide weather their call drops cost them in lakhs,then only they will opt for this,else you have a land line type booster too for 5k but its available only for single user.
In electronic city,banglore,you might find it,but you need a specialist to fit it.booster is all about positions of antennas.an experienced guy can save you thousands with his perfect positions of booster antennas for maximum effeciency
I have not seen a local company producing booster.If you are the only user in your home,then i can give u a cheap solution for it.
Buy 6db omni power antenna from market and an antenna adapter for your mobile.
Fix the omni antenna at a place where you get signal and connect the antenna to your mobile antenna adapter using rg-8 coaxial cable.job done....
