This amplifier is used to connect to a modem that has an SMA female connector (e.g. modems that are built into vending machines, ATMs, etc). This amplifier is NOT the same as Wilson's 3-watt direct connect amplifier, which is recommended for connecting to modems and phones via an adapter cable. This amplifier can be used with an adapter cable to connect to a modem or phone, but you will need an FME/Female to SMA/Male cable to connect the adapter cable to the amplifier.

Compatible with 2G/3G GSM devices ONLY - NOT CDMA! Use the 811225 for CDMA.

This amplifier requires an antenna (sold separately). The amplifier has an SMA FEMALE connector on it, so we recommend the 4" mini magmount antenna with SMA connector. Any other antenna that we sell can be used, but you will need an SMA-to-FME adapter in order to connect them to the amplifier.
