Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

Cellular boosting systems should come with their own boosters. May I ask for the brand and model name of the booster you are using?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.
Thank you,
Jason

Jason,
Please re-read my question.

Hello sir or madame,

I have installed thousands of networks and have setup more repeating stations than I can remember.

Perhaps, I misunderstood the initial question.

Do you have a signal boosting system or do you just have a coaxial cable?

I only see what you see on this page.

Hope that helpes.
By the way, the system has three components, outside, inside, and AC power.

Are you using the RG11 cable that came with the system or are you adding that cable after the fact?

I have purchased additional coax for an extended distance installation
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones,

Running such a length of RG11 cable will require a booster of sorts. The best option would be to use a shorter length of RG11 cable.

Is there any way that you can use the shorter RG11 cable that was included in the package or will that simply not suffice?

No. Not possible
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones,

I am quite sure, this will not work for you in that case. I will opt out and allow another to help you.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.

When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.

Thank you for your patience.
