    I have just been informed by Wilson Electronics that as of October 15 ,2003
    they are coming out with a repeater that allows a number of cellular user in
    a building with this unit installed to comunicate with excelent results. I
    have the same problem as you and I intend to install one of these units
    price $250.00 to $300.00 in my house I feel it will pay for it selph in 2
    years. If you need any more information my email address is
