The omni-directional antenna is installed outside on the ship, as high up as possible. It receives the signal from all operators 360 degrees around the ship. It sends this signal down the SD400 low loss cable to the Marineboost 5.1 repeater. The repeater amplifies the signal and re-transmits it into the area where you want coverage.
Mobile phones, tablet / laptops in that area then communicate with the improved reception. When a mobile device transmits, the signal is received by the indoor antenna, amplified by the MarineBoost and transmitted back to the operators base station through the outdoor antenna.
The omni-directional antenna eliminates the need to point the antenna in the direction of your operator as it will receive the signal from all directions. The signal strength indicator on the repeater lights up as the signal is received. This shows you how strong your signal is.
With this repeater, you amplify all 5 mobile signal bands. That 800,900,1800,2100 and 2600Mhz respectively.
Networks : GSM + 3G + 4G
The theoretical maximum distance out to see that the repeater can amplify a signal is 30km.
The MarineBoost 5.1 signal booster works with all mobile operators, so once installed you can be assured that everybody’s mobile reception will be amplified on the boat. The repeater receives all signals from all mobile masts within a 30km distance on the coast.
The MarineBoost 5.1, 5 band 1 port kit includes:
Quick install guide
We recommend doing a "loose install" to begin with. Do not fasten down the cables until you have found where best to install the various parts.
Install the outdoor omni antenna somewhere secure on the outside of the ship.
Cable from this antenna down inside the boat to the location where you want signal.
Install the booster and indoor antenna here.
Finally, once you have attached all the cables, plug in the power.
