I am now in a house which is protected from civilization by a hill of granite on one side and the ocean on the other three sides. Great for my nerves but I need a cell phone signal which seems to just make it over the granite and grazes the third floor attic. <br><br>But the attic is hot and I would rather be on the front porch in my rocker.<br><br>Internet searches show many ways to stick stuff into your attic and bathe your house with cell phone signal.<br><br>Question: has anyone used any of these things? There are the 200-300 dollar ones that sound good but it could be a total scam. Do any really work?<br><br>

As you know cell phones are just radios, so all you need is the proper antenna and amplifier.<br><br>I've been thinking of doing this myself, as I get so so reception outside the house, but inside I get just about zero signal anywhere but my front window.<br><br>What you want is something like this: linky<br><br>Either the in building or signal boost one.<br><br>Basically, it's an outside antenna, an amplifier, and an inside antenna.<br><br><br>Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!®

That first Wilson solution of an antennae in the attic is a buy but the nearest store is Seabrook New Hampshire. I can actually see the nuclear power plant in Seabrook from my front porch on a clear day but it is a long drive up the coast.<br><br>
I can sit on the roof to send but waiting for a call gets tedious. If I leave it up there I can usually hear it ring using the most obnoxious old time phone ring on high but most of the time I miss it. And if it is a visitor willing to stop and buy gin and fried clams it is very sad when I miss it.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
They have cell phone enhancers and I'm sure they could ship it to you so you wouldn't have to visit a physical store.<br><br>Here's a link to a search I did:<br><br>cell phone signal extenders<br><br>Hope that helps.<br><br>"It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness."

[color:blue]And where do I put this 18 inches? (do not say "that's what she said".)</font color=blue> - On your roof on the side that needs the reception --> not onless you feel your arse is bigger - <br><br>
