Phone boosters, cel fi have mobile booster they seem to work ok if you have weak signal, you don’t have to be far out of a town to have poor signal, looking at purchasing but they have different aerials , would a 6.5 dbi , aerial have less signal than an 8 dbi aerial

Hi Ray. I have a Celfi (Telstra setup) but use it at holiday home with little coverage and it's brilliant. At the time I also bought a car antennae setup as well it works really well out in the bush but I've decided not to keep it as I have a satellite phone and would like to recover the space on the bull bar. This is what I have;

1x Blackhawk Trucker/4WD Edge Antenna (black)
Heavy duty vehicle antenna, 1.07m, 6/8dBi, with 4m of PT240 cable, SMA/M connector.
698-2170MHz. Black.
1x Blackhawk Paddle Antenna - 3G/4G/4GX
Indoor paddle antenna. 2dBi gain 698-960MHz, 1710-2700MHz.
For direct connection to SMA connector.
1x 12VDC Power Cable for Cel-Fi GO
12VDC cigarette lighter power cable 1.8m for Cel-Fi GO

PM me if you want to buy.

True.
Anyhow to answer your question, the setup that I have seems to work fine. The issue with antennae's, and I assume it's the same with the Celfi types, is small gain, say 2dB types, have a broad reception area but shorter range, high gain (say 9dB etc) long range and narrow beam and the medium gain (6 dB) is the happy medium between wide coverage and reasonable range. If that makes sense. What ever the case, with the Celfi you MUST have some sort of a signal as it only boosts what it gets, it can't create signal out of nothing.

i would suggest pairing your cel fi with an rfi antenna. I run three different rfi antenna's depending on where i go


I run a small 5dbi cdq7194 for hilly areas , a cdq7197 1.2m 7.5dbi and if i am in the goldfields area of wa i run a 2m cdq2199 9dbi 3g antenna. that will allow me to pickup minesites towers
