It may seem crazy to someone but it also may be quite interesting to someone who wants to discover something new. In fact, making a new thing at home is really interesting!
Anyway, with the right direction, accurately chosen materials, adequate time investment, and following all the steps carefully you have a great chance to make an excellent cell phone signal booster at home.
Before you make a cell phone signal booster at home, you have to collect some materials. The necessary materials are the following:
Coaxial cable (10m)
A container (plastic preferably)
Bolt and nut
Iron wire (40 cm long)
These items are easily available at your local electrical shop at a reasonable price. After collecting these items, follow the bellowing steps to create the cell phone booster.
1. Make an Antenna
This is the first step and in this step, bend the iron wire at 90 degrees in a square shape using pliers. It should be a 9 cm distance between the first two bends and the rest bends should be 8 cm. Then bend the wire inside the square shape where the connector block will be installed.
After completing these processes, you need to take a water pipe and cut it in half and then you have to create a hole in the center that requires it to be large enough so that a bolt can be put in the hole.
Then Set a bolt in that hole and set up the antenna on the top then tighten it using a nut.

2. Connect a coaxial cable
In this step, you have to connect the coaxial cable. The coaxial cable is required to conduct an electrical signal. To connect the cable, you have to detach the inner and outer wires. Then you have to join the inner wire securely to one side of the connector block and the outer wire should be joined with another side of the block.
3. Join the pigtail connector to the antenna
After you have created the antenna, you have to connect a pigtail connector to your cell phone antenna’s port and the other pigtail connector should be fit to your cell phone’s charging port.
4. Position the antenna to the right place
Position the antenna in a better place where you will find the suitable signal for your device. You may also set the antenna on your TV antenna in the same way and drag the cable near your phone but keep away from the wireless router.
Making a cell phone signal booster at home is very simple but it may be dangerous sometimes if you do anything wrong. So, you have to follow some precautions while creating the cell phone booster.
You may get poor signals if you buy low-quality materials. So, collect genuine materials that can also protect your phone from damage as you connect the pigtail connector directly to your cell phone.
If you’re not experienced in basic electric mechanisms, then you should better take help from a local technician at a small fee to make the cell phone booster.
Don’t connect the booster directly to the electricity. It may damage your phone and can cause danger.
Do homemade cell phone signal boosters actually work?
Yes, if you make homemade cell phone signal boosters following the proper steps, then it actually works well. But if there is no signal outside, then the signal booster will not work. Because the cell phone boosters multiply the signals from the outside and provide them inside the home.
In a statistic, we found that 97% of Americans use cell phones and not everyone finds the great network signal at home. Especially the poor network signal is much in the rural areas but this problem is not only found in the rural but also in the urban areas. So, if you make a homemade cell phone signal booster, it might improve your cell phone’s network signal and solve your signal issue.
