Cell Antenna

Recommended Posts

I have not tried that.

Connectors can be tricky and hard to get right.

Coax cable is not the same for all applications, with many sizes and signal loss characteristics.

For a short run, it may work, but I recommend getting cable already fabricated with the proper ends.

I have soldered many a connection on coax cable down to the small RG-174 on to a BNC connector. It is not easy. So, as Jim stated, buy one prefabricated and get the ultra low loss cable if possible. Twenty feet or less is not going to make to much of a difference, but at longer runs you will have much more signal loss. I hope that the prefabricated ones have taken in all the accounts for good ratios when they decided what the proper length was.

Here is one site for COAX cable formula if you decide to do it your self.

You need a cell antenna for cell phone and CB antenna for CB. The wave length is way different and you may end up ruining you cell phone because of bad swr (standing wave ratio).
