    We installed the 50dB Wilson Amp #804003 today.
    Yagi outside #301111, 60' LMR400 and the Stealth inside antenna #301106
    Had to find the best spot outside for the Yagi using a pigtail direct to a
    i90 in test mode until we got a good reading, I think it was about a -68 (I
    wasn't on the roof so I'm not sure)
    then played a little with the best spot for the stealth antenna inside. I
    have a single family house with a full basement, my home office is in the
    basement and I had no signal in my office before the amp we had 1-2 bars
    upstairs and not much better sitting outside on the deck.

    Found the best spot for the stealth was at the bottom of the stairs (in the
    basement) with the antenna horizontal under the false celling, the antenna
    is just laying on top of the celling tile, now I get 4 bars in my office and
    3-4 bars anywhere upstairs and 2-3 bars on the deck

    A friend of mine who own a cell and satellite TV store did the install, I
    called him last week to order it and he said it would run about $600
    installed (he sometimes gives me a deal on installation) but when he left
    today he said he'd get me the bill tomorrow so I'm not sure of the cost yet.
    I'll follow up with the cost.

    So far its great.

    I'll add this and just say that "buyer beware" and the end user is not
    considered the licensee:

    You are receiving this email in response to your inquiry to the FCC on
    10/6/2003 12:39:56 PM.

    Thank you for contacting the FCC.

    47 CFR 90.219 and 47 CFR 22.283 both include the same term to identify
    who is eligible to utilize these devices, the licensee.


    Dear FCC Representative,

    I am in search of the clarification of the FCC rule stated above on
    the
    ability of a private, non-FCC licensed individual, to install a signal
    booster (aka Bi-Directional Amplifier) to amplify signals above 150
    MHz
    (specificially 800 and 1.9 GHz) inside of a private building. In my
    interpretation of the FCC rule as I tried to explain to an individual
    that the said installation of such a system can only be authorized
    and/or
    installed by a "licensee" holding a Part 90 or Part 22 license (or
    their authorized sub-contractor) and he , as a private individual" is
    not
    allowed to freely install such a system as he is not the "licensee".

    This individual is under the impression that because the signal
    booster
    (BDA) is an un-regulated device he has the ability to install these
    units without the concurrence of the Cellular/PCS providers without
    their
    knowledge. Of course we are at a blockage here as the manufacturers
    of
    these devices (specificially Andrew Corp.) have also advised him that
    he doesn't need any type of authorization to install such a device to
    amplify someone else's licensed channels.

    For your convenience I have cut and pasted the rule along with my
    contact phone number below if you would like to speak directly with
    me.

    Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

    Mark
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    FCC Rule:

    Sec. 90.219 Use of signal boosters.

    Licensees authorized to operate radio systems in the frequency
    bands
    above 150 MHz may employ signal boosters at fixed locations in
    accordance with the following criteria:
    (a) The amplified signal is retransmitted only on the exact
    frequency(ies) of the originating base, fixed, mobile, or portable
    station(s). The booster will fill in only weak signal areas and cannot
    extend the system's normal signal coverage area.
    (b) Class A narrowband signal boosters must be equipped with
    automatic gain control circuitry which will limit the total effective
    radiated power (ERP) of the unit to a maximum of 5 watts under all
    conditions. Class B broadband signal boosters are limited to 5 watts
    ERP
    for each authorized frequency that the booster is designed to amplify.
    (c) Class A narrowband boosters must meet the out-of-band emission
    limits of Sec. 90.209 for each narrowband channel that the booster is
    designed to amplify. Class B broadband signal boosters must meet the
    emission limits of Sec. 90.209 for frequencies outside of the
    booster's
    design passband.
    (d) Class B broadband signal boosters are permitted to be used
    only
    in confined or indoor areas such as buildings, tunnels, underground
    areas, etc., or in remote areas, i.e., areas where there is little or
    no
    risk of interference to other users.
    (e) The licensee is given authority to operate signal boosters
    without separate authorization from the Commission. Certificated
    equipment must be employed and the licensee must ensure that all
    applicable rule requirements are met.
    (f) Licensees employing either Class A narrowband or Class B
    broadband signal boosters as defined in Sec. 90.7 are responsible for
    correcting any harmful interference that the equipment may cause to
    other systems. Normal co-channel transmissions will not be considered
    as
    harmful interference. Licensees will be required to resolve
    interference
    problems pursuant to Sec. 90.173(b).

    What are you implying? The Wilson Amp isn't legal?
    I don't understand your post.

    Re: Installation update

    No the amp is legal as long as it's type accepted (for US and Canada).
    It's the installation and operation by somone other than the licensee
    is where it's illegal. The "end user" is not considered the licensee
    and by FCC rules and the FCC reply shown below is not allowed to
    deploy or operate one.
