    Cellular booster/amplifier/repeater

    Dear HF Community,

    My name is Jay and I am new to HF. I have been doing my best to obtain information on a cell phone booster. My search as led me here. I am in need of technical information for a cell phone booster/amplifier/repeater. I am in a suburb with poor reception, and on the T-Mobile (LTE?) network, using a Samsung phone. Due to budgetary constraints, my plan is to obtain a used system which uses a directional, external antenna with RG11 at about 50-75 feet. If necessary, I will 'build' a system piece by piece. I am looking for resources to educate myself regarding the function of boosters. In the meantime, I have populated several questions for anyone willing to provide assistance.

    1. How can I differentiate the performance differences between, for example, a 1W 50db system and a 3W 20db system?

    2. What is the difference between an analog and digital signal? Are these signals similar to TV signals whereas only the frequency between radio and TV is different?

    3. Can a 'mobile' booster be used by installing external antennas? In other words, is a 'mobile' booster the same technology as a 'home' booster?

    4. Will a 3G booster pick up the 4G or LTE signals?

    I thank you in advance for entertaining my post, and your expertise is appreciated.
