I’ve setup my Maximum Signal equipment but I do not see any extra bars on my device, why?
Under the new FCC rules you will not see a drastic change in bars as long as you are getting signal. Only when the signal is really weak will you see that. The new amplifiers keep you connected. Bars are a feel good. The key is an optimal signal. An optimal signal is not necessarily a full signal. It is a signal that gives you clear communication and better uploads and downloads. With new amplifier optimal performance occurs when you are not right next to the interior antenna but a bit away from it . That is how the carriers want it. They are the ones calling all the shots now and the FCC is abiding by their guidelines.
What are the differences between the two models?
The difference is power , coverage area and antenna separation required.
Are these the models that have ZERO requirements for antenna separation?
The In home requires 12 feet separation and the In -Vehicle/Rv Package will require 6 feet separation.
If someone used the RV model in their home, how much difference would they get in useable signal? how much less indoor coverage area would they end up with?
The In home provides a minimum coverage of 2500 square feet expandable up to 10,000 square feet with expansion package that will include a revolutionary splitter while RV / In Vehicle unit will provide about 1000 square feet of coverage.
How many cellular devices will each model support?
They will support up to 10 devices even on different networks.
In the past, you’ve said wireless amps/repeaters don’t work well for DATA service. Are these voice-only repeaters?
These handle data as well as voice perfect as Jack has documented in his test reports.
Are the receiving antennas Omni or Directional/Yagi?
The package will include ceiling mount internal antenna but it will support any dual band antenna you wish to use.
Are the internal/retransmit antennas wall mount? desk mount? omni? directional panels?
They have have LED lights that change color to indicate proper antenna separation and have no less than six different fail safes built in so the units cannot go into oscillation from improper antenna separation and it will just shut the unit down if antennas are not properly placed.
Since they do have antenna separation requirements, do they have LEDs to indicate proper operation?
The units turn down the power if no amplification to 0 DB gain is needed and have shown a gain of up to 45 DB gain when needed.
What minimum signal in dB is needed for each model?
They have picked up to signal at up to -120 db signal and amplified it to a very useable signal. The sensitivity on these units is amazing.
Is the amp compatible with: CDMA, GSM, IDEn, LTE, WiMax, HSPA?
The amplifier is compatible with all protocols implemented on 800 and 1900 mhz except Iden. Wimax is on 2500 mhz.
I noticed on the FCC file that there is a significant drop in power at 1900 MHZ. Is this an FCC requirement?
The frequency power is FCC specs. Power numbers are really meaningless in watts it is the db gain that is important and gain 1900 is very close to those on 800 mhz.
