WiFi Ranger EliteAC FM booster pack Install

I just installed the WiFi Ranger EliteAC FM booster pack (2-mile range) on my new 5.0TA trailer. I sent ETI some shielded CAT6 cable for them to run to the roof. Had them coil it up under the solar panel once they ran the cable. Currently my trailer is parked in the back of my yard and connected to shore power. Itís a good ways away from my Wi-Fi router in the house but it boosted the signal enough for me to be able to make a WiFi call while surfing the net. Next will be to hook up my weBoost antenna for my 4G/5G Verizon MiFi device.

Nice clean well planned installation. Please let us know how it performs in the real world of campgrounds and national parks.
I installed and used a Ubiquiti Bullet AP years ago on a sailboat. It was amazing over water to connect to a restaurant a few miles away. It helped in marinas as well but usually the wifi was so overloaded we only could get and send emails. Without the bullet though we wouldn't have even been able to get that.
Safe travels, Bob

Looks like a good install. I'm also interested to see how well it works for you so be sure to give us an update.

I have a weBoost Drive Sleek with a directional antenna. I was hoping to try it out last month but our camp location was so close to a cell tower it wasn't needed. I'll be camping in rural Arkansas all next week so I may be in a location where I can give it a good test.
