Research Protocol

A. Objectives of the study

This study aims to:

Produce a portable wireless cellphone signal booster for effective service and
internet.

Determine the efficiency and efficacy of the device and areas with low signals.
Provide statistical measures and analysis on the distance and signal strength of

the device.

B. Materials

The materials needed to assemble and create the device in the study are, thick

Iron Wire ( 50 cm), thin Iron wire ( 20 cm), coaxial Cable (1 meter), 2 pcs. connector

blocks (20 amperes), 1 pc. small bolt and nut (17 mm), electrical tape, aluminum foil,

water pipe (10 cm in length and a diameter of 5 cm), plastic Container, 10 cm solder

wire and a 3.5mm input plug.

This project also needs a hardware tools to connect and attach the materials.

These are pliers, phillips screw driver, cutter, VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter) or

multitester, soldering Iron, protractor, and soldering stand.


C. Building the Antenna

Using the 50 cm thick wire, build the frame of the 3g antenna with the help of a

pliers. Straighten wire with pliers and bent it accurately in the center at 90 degrees.

Measure 9 cm on both sides from the center and bend wire inwards at 90 degrees. The

edges of the wire must also be bent inwards at 90 degrees - the distance from the last

bend should be 8 cm.

D. Installing the Connector Block

Install the connector block on the ends of the wire and secure it with a

screwdriver. Make sure that the 2 connector blocks are connected and the 2 ends of the

antenna framework is connected from each other using the small thin wires.

E. Attaching Coaxial Cable and Pipe

Saw one side of the pipe by half, and make a hole in the center on the other side.

The hole should be of such size that the bolt could go though. After you insert the bolt

into the hole, fix the antenna on top and secure it with a nut. Next, you need to connect

a coaxial cable. To do this, strip the end of the cable and separate the inner and outer

wires. Connect the inner wire to one side of the small block, and outer wire - to another.

The 3.5mm input plug will be placed at the end of the coaxial cable.
F. Placing of the Apparatus

Place the finished antenna framework with coaxial cable and pipe attached on a

high altitude. Make sure that there are no obstructions or any harmful risks that may

damage the antenna.

E. Creating the Case

Strip the other end of the coaxial cable, and again divide the wires inside it. At this time,

trim the external wires as it wont be needed and in order to make it clean. Take a piece

of plastic and cut it out of any desired shape. Make a small hole on one side, and pull

the inner wire of coaxial cable through it. Strengthen this construction with an electrical

tape. Now put the modem on the piece of plastic and attach the plastic to the back of

the phone and connect it.

G. Evaluating the Actual Strength

Use the cellular device to find the dB or decibels value of the phone after

attaching it to the antenna device.

1. Nokia / Windows Phone, dial ##3282#

2. iPhone, dial *3001#12345#*

3. Android, access Settings>General>About Phone> Network or Status

The closer the value to -50dB, the better the signal strength.
