Cellular extenders - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

you will need a cell-phone booster, like you might use to illuminate an office area that is below ground for instance. You need a solar panel and battery pack to supply it. Then on the antenna side you need an elevated position and a small yagi beamed on the nearest cell phone base to get the down-load link sorted. Finally, on the up-link side into the tunnel you need leaky coaxial feeder from Andrew Corp.
That should do it.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
