Here in East Hampton working on a new house build...cell signal in general is bad here, but mounted an ext antenna (dual band Wilson - ALL of this equipment is Wilson) @ peak of attic, pointed to nearest towers, cedar roof so fairly optimistic about signal reception (COSMETICS was an issue so trying inside first). Anyway, I have the ext antenna running to a 811201 in-line amp to a primary AG Pro75 amp then to a 2 way splitter which goes to 2 inside ceiling dome antennas -1 2nd floor, other 1st floor. The signal has improved a SMIDGE but nothing major....I was told the 811201 would really boost it before the AG75....but maybe 3db gain.
I am going to do further tweaking/aiming of the antenna BUT my huge question is this:
The client has the ATT Microcell on site for the trailer...I assume they might wanna use this device when they move in as well. The Microcell have a spot of it for an external antenna....would it be possible to combine this ext antenna into the same ext antenna from the Wilson and amp both signals thru out house? I was thinking of a "reverse splitter" combiner kinda deal....so the ATT microcell AND the Wilson ext ant both go into a combiner then a single output to the amp(s)
Should I try this? I know I can get the parts to do this conversion and alll but just wondered if anyone thought it would even work? Worth a shot?
This is the best forum I could find for this issue....any other places to look let me know!
