Anyone using a cell phone booster on their property to aid in getting a stronger sing along inside their cabins or lodges? Our signal is decent outside but poor inside.

Spend the money on the large area Wilson booster.

If you have a metal roof on the cabin, you will probably need a external antenna, we did even with booster. And ours was a Wilson as well.

And make sure it's compatible with the service you use. Most of them won't help T Mobile.

I have a Wilson that works very well in our travel trailer with AT&T. Before the booster we had no connection whatsoever.

Wilson is the way to go. A GOOD yagi antenna, as high up as you can get it. Spring for real coax, like LMR400. The entire thing is getting more of the signal from the tower to the booster.
Put the outside antenna as far from the inside antenna as you can.

Wilson works great for us. $350 at radio shack.

I bought a Wilson 4G-X a month ago, wish I had bought it a long time ago. Went from 1 bar with no data to sometimes 4 bars with data. I bought the mobile setup so I could use it in the car, camp trailer or even in a deer stand. Only thing I would do differently is purchase a better antenna for the camp trailer for better consistent reception. This is what I got.

I had a Z-Boost originally that only worked when it was in the mood and quit working altogether after a year. Replaced it with a Wilson and have full service in my metal building at all times.

Is there a specific model of Yagi antenna you recommend?
