    Ok so I work on a tug boat and I'm in major ports up Amd down the east coast, when I'm in the wheel house or by a port hole (window) I have my Verizon 4g LTE. But when I'm in my bed I have no service at all. Is there some sort of booster I can buy and put in a window that will provide me with better service when I'm in my room? Preferably wireless, but beggers can't be choosers.

    Thanks

    There are cell phone boosters available. I've seen them in radio stores here in Canada, but haven't used them.


    Have a look at this site.

    I've used this company for my VHF radio requirements, and I know they carry stuff that might fit your needs.

    Thank you guys! I'm going to check these out, most of them seam to be only regular cell signal. I'd really like one that supports the LTE. Ill go through them better when I have better signal.
