    I went and bought the Clearvoice repeater and it works. My phone has six
    bars down in the basement where I had, at best, 1 bar before. Voice quality
    is a whole lot better.

    Wife is extremely happy. Best thing? It was the cheapest one I could find.

    You do need to find a spot that can get at least 2 bars on your phone
    consistently to mount the patch antenna. Fortunately I was able to get 4
    bars in one spot inside my garage.

    Thanks to whoever told me about repeaters in this group. Sorry I forgot
    your handle.

    I ordered one over the weekend and I hope mine works as well. My home
    office is in the basement and I often times have dropped calls.

    Be sure to locate the internal antenna as close as possible to the area
    where you will be using the phone most.

    I did not choose a central location upstairs for the antenna as a matter of
    convenience and I do lose the signal at the other end of the
    house.

    Also, for some reason when I mounted the patch antenna in a horizontal
    position facing the tower, I could not get a good signal. I remounted the
    antenna inside from the roof of the garage, in vertical position in the same
    spot and the signal improved dramatically.

    Good luck.

    You can lose up to 30 dB when changing from verticle to horzontal
    polarization.
    Keep it verticle.

    You should also keep your phone vertical. There seem to be many pouches that
    hold the phone with the antenna in a horizontal position.

    Re: Clearvoice repeater

    I got my Clear Voice repeater yesterday and installed it last night.
    It works pretty well, but walls and floors cut the signal
    significantly. I needed the help in my basement office and it is
    giving me a very strong signal there.

    As for the outside antenna, I found that a signal was overloading the
    amplifier. I am pretty sure it is from a T-Mobile tower that is very
    close and line of sight from my property, so instead of orienting the
    antenna towards a Sprint tower, I had to position it in such a way to
    null the T-Mobile signal. I was able to point in in such a direction
    to get the signal strength back down into the proper operating range.
    Since both signals are in the 1900 MHZ band, the amplifier doesn't know
    the difference between one and the other and is being swamped by the
    stronger one.

    I guess that if it weren't for the strong T-Mobile signal, I would be
    able to optimize the Sprint signal and it would work even better. All
    in all, it is accomplishing my goal.
