Weboost 4G-S and Mobley

Recommended Posts

Need to boost my Mobley reception. The Weboost Drive 4Gs and similar models aren't in the budget this year. Has anyone had success using the Weboost 4G-S cradle and a Mobley?  Plans are to use a painters pole and a cellular truckers antenna and bungie to the RV ladder.

I have one. And for the price it's a worthwhile addition. Due to other changes, I'm now carrying the 4G-S in our toad, in case it is needed while traveling. 

They run very hot. So place them on an appropriate surface (I use a piece of floor tile.). And keep a spacer between the Mobley and the cradle. I use a small piece of plastic about 3/8th thick, and rubber band either the Phone, Mobley, MiFI, whatever the device is, into the cradle. And make sure you have an adequate ground plane for the antenna. In a pinch, I've attached it to the metal fans up over the dash, and found they were enough to help pull in the signal... But up on roof is best, either a 10" saw blade, or Home Depot has 8" X 10" galvanized metal in the roof section. I have two of those together up on the roof, calked down, and they make a good ground plane. 

Now, just to be clear, thought he 4G-S will help in many situations, it is not a big dawg cell amp... So their will be times when you it just won't get the job done for you. But again, for the price to performance - I believe it is a good tool to have in the Communication Arsenal:)!

$.02:)!

Best of luck to you,

Smitty
