SureCall 20db Attenuator for an Improved Signal Reception

With the newly introduced AGC (Automatic Gain Control) present in all FCC certified consumer boosters, outside signal can now be considered “too good,” causing the amplifier to shut down. Amplifiers work best with an outside signal between -90dB and -65dB, but if the outside signal is better than -65dB, one can use one or more RF Attenuators to reduce the amount of decibels entering the booster and prevent a possible AGC overload. 5db, 10db, and 20db attenuators are available, and one can group these attenuators together to attenuate as many decibels as is necessary.

The attenuator has N/Female and N/Male connectors and connects directly to the “outside antenna” side of the amplifier.

SureCall Force5 – A guide to Signal Boosters

The SureCall Force5 is a self-contained, five-band, Voice/3G/4G LTE cellular signal booster
The SureCall Force5 is a self-contained, five-band, Voice/3G/4G LTE cellular signal booster

The SureCall Force5 is a self-contained, five-band, Voice/3G/4G LTE cellular signal booster. It is built with high linearity to support upto 100 simultaneous callers and data users for coverage areas of 20-25,000 square feet. The Force5 combines PCS and Cellular dual-bands for all major carriers with LTE and AWS frequencies for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. It is considered to be a commercial grade cellular amplification solution suitable for offices, schools, hospitals, industrial buildings, housing complexes to name a few.

The Force5 is a reasonably priced signal amplification that acts as an alternate to expensive and complex DAS integrations. It is the first 5-band cellular booster compliant with FCC certification standards and the benchmark for providing optimal signal booster coverage in all types of large building environment applications. Introduced in 2009, it has thousands of successful installations throughout the US and Canada.

Outside Antenna

The Force5 kit comes with a choice of two outside antennas:

The SC-288W Omni Outdoor Antenna has 4dB gain. Omni antennas receive and send signals in a 360º radius. They can receive signals from multiple cell towers and are best for boosting signal on many different carriers. They are excellent in most situations where the existing outside signal strength is moderate to strong.

The SC-230W-S Yagi Outdoor Antenna has up to 8dB of gain. It is a directional antenna that can reach cell towers up to 30 miles away. It needs to be set up pointing in the direction of the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction.

Inside Antenna

The Force5 kit also has a choice of two inside antennas:

The SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional plastic dome antenna with that broadcasts signals in all directions. It has 6dB gain and is designed for central locations with 360º coverage. The antenna range is dependent on three factors namely, 1) physical obstructions, 2) power generated by the booster and 3) reception from outside signal received and distributed by the outside antenna.

The SC-248W Panel Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10dB gain. Panel antennas allow optimum reception to targeted areas. It can be mounted to either the wall or ceiling.

Number of Inside Antennas

The inside antennas can be either the 222-W Omni Dome Antenna or the 248W Panel Antenna.

The standard kit comes with one inside antenna, one 30’ coax cable, and one 75’ coax cable.

The two-antenna kit comes with two inside antennas, a 2-way splitter, one 30’ coax cable, one 75′ coax cable, and two 50’ coax cables.

The four-antenna kit comes with four inside antennas, a 4-way splitter, one 30’ coax cable, one 75′ coax cable, and four 50’ coax cables.

SureCall CM-METER-01 Five-Band RF Signal Meter

Are you thinking about the use of this meter? Here comes its uses – to map the frequency environment, point directional antennas, and maximize signal booster coverage installation projects.

The SureCall CM-METER-01 Five-Band RF Signal Meter is designed exclusively for professionals to conduct site surveys and help aim directional antennas. The SureCall Signal Meter measures signal on the five main frequency bands used in North America.

The signal meter can detect and measure existing signal strength which can be used to determine the best location for outside antennas or to help aim directional antennas. An added advantage of the CM-METER-01 is that it can also be used indoors to identity the locations inside that suffer for poor signal strength to help in locating the inside components.

The CM-METER-01 is a five band signal meter that can measure signal strength on the two 700 MHz bands used for Verizon and AT&T LTE, 800 MHz Cellular & 1900 MHz PCS which are used by most carrier’s 2G and 3G networks, and AWS which is used by T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and others. The built-in display shows you which band you’re measuring, if any block is selected, and the signal strength in decibels. The meter is highly sensitive and can detect signals as weak as -110 dB. The meter includes 4 AAA rechargeable batteries which can power the meter for up to 2.5 hours.

The CM-METER-01 includes an SMA-Female port for connecting an external antenna. During a system installation, the meter can be directly connected to an outside antenna to help determine the ideal mounting location and aiming direction. By improving the location or aim of the outside antenna, you help get more existing signal to the amplifier which can greatly improve the coverage area and performance of the signal booster system.

The SureCall RF signal meter precisely measures wireless signal for Voice/3G/4G/LTE for all carriers in North America (Canada & Mexico included). It features a digital LCD readout for each band. The meter can be used to receive and measure an outside RF wireless signal from the air, an installed outdoor antenna or directly connect the field antenna. Unit can also be used to measure signal loss in long cable installation runs. It has proved to be an amazing tool used to determine an ideal location to install outside antennas and achieve optimal signal booster coverage installation.
