How Foresters & Forestry Technicians Depend on Cell Phone Boosters

From projects to monitoring: the need for instant communication

When traveling deep into the woodlands and forests, many foresters and forest technicians often spend the majority of their time outdoors.

The constant shifting terrain & wildlife along with the many job duties (surveying, spraying, measuring, analyzing, etc.) requires the ability to communicate instantly. Quick connection is no luxury but a necessity in this line of work.

Especially when it comes to emergencies.

The severity of wild fires and its impact on ecology and public safety means fire management officers need to immediately coordinate and provide solutions. Delays in seconds equates to costs in millions.

However, working outdoors in an isolated off-the-grid area causes many complications for cellular reception. And with poor signal, all facets of work and life are compromised.

The Problem

Cellular signals are radio frequency (RF) signals. And like all RF signals (AM/FM, wifi, satellite, etc.) they are easily interrupted by literally anything under the sun.

All it takes is just one issue:

  1. Distance from the cell tower
  2. Outside interference: trees, hills, and mountains
  3. Weather

And cell service is disrupted. When driving from one forest job site to the next, most likely all three conditions simultaneously cause poor cell phone reception in your vehicle. 

But what if there was a way to amplify your weak signal? 

Well, there is. One many forestry tech and fire management officers depend upon. 

The Solution

Everything changes with a cell phone signal booster.

A signal booster takes any existing 3G & 4G signal and amplifies up to 32X and then rebroadcasts the boosted signal into the home, office, or car.

It essentially is a megaphone for weak cellular signal to be "heard" by your cell phone. 

The results? 

Better signal. Better connections. Reliable reception for talk, text, and faster internet.

Here are all the features and benefits of a cell phone booster: 

  1. Works for all cell phones & cellular devices that use 3G & 4G LTE.
  2. Carrier-proof: Works for all carriers in USA & Canada.
  3. One-time purchase, no monthly fees.
  4. No need for wifi or any broadband connection

"Unicorns don't exist. What's the catch?"

Just one.

You'll need existing cell phone signal outside.

A cell phone booster ENHANCES existing signal, it does not create it.

So here's a simple test. 

Do you have irregular reception (or any)? Is signal stronger outside your building or car than inside? If spotty reception is the leading cause of poor service, then a booster most likely will work for you.

You can learn more if a cell phone booster will work for you by learning  how to read your signal strength in dB

Below are our top signal boosting choices for car to home to commercial use. 

Cell Phone Signal Booster For Cars


weboost drive 4g-s signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-S (470107)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Up to +23 dB Gain

Our review:

If voice calls are the most important thing when you're on the road, then the Drive 4G-S is a solid choice. 

Phone has to be nested inside the cradle to receive maximum amplified signal, so it also doubles as a dash mount for using map services.

Might be a tight fit on some wider smartphones/phablets, especially with rugged cases. Only boosts one cellular device while sitting inside the cradle.  

It's a good starter unit, but not as powerful as the next two.


weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M (470108)

  • Boosts Voice, Text, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our review:

Our most popular car kit. 

Boosts cellular signal up to 4 cellular devices. The inside antenna is capable of broadcasting an arm's length in any direction which means whole vehicle coverage. 

Great performer in the city. Good in rural areas. 


weboost drive 4g-x signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-X for (470510)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Message, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Pro Model: 60% More reach from and to cell tower

Our review:

And our most powerful car booster kit.

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has 2x the uplink power compared to other car signal boosters. This leads to 30-60% more reach to the cell tower.

In remote, rural areas, this is the one you take to the field. Used by many professionals who are often in off-the-grid areas.

Cell Phone Signal Booster For Small Buildings


weboost home 4g signal booster

weBoost Home 4G for (Model #: 470101)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For 1 Room Coverage
  • Up to +60 dB Gain

Our review: 

Very good starter kit.

Mostly recommended for people in the city, since it's a desktop-range booster. Capable of covering up to 1-2 rooms depending on best case scenarios like a very strong outside signal, but poor inside signal at your home.

Most customers report 500-750 sq ft coverage range, but again, that's dependent on the quality of the outside signal. 

Very good choice for single office, home office (SOHO) and small areas like apartments and cabins with good outside signal. 


weboost connect 4g signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G (Model #: 470103)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Whole Home Coverage
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our review:

The Smokey Bear.

This is the most popular building kit and the one we generally recommend to start with.

Best conditions put it around 5,000 sq ft. Real world conditions put it around 2,000 to 3,000 sq ft for most customers.

Considering the average consumer building in USA is around 2,500 to 3,500 sq ft, we're confident this is the right fit. 

Great option for homes, small offices, farm houses, and buildings under 5,000 sq ft wide. For people in the countryside or in below average to poor signal areas, this is the one to look at first. 


weboost connect 4g-x commercial signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G-X (Model #: 471104)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Large Building Coverage
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

The Muir. The Carson. The Tilden.

It's the most powerful consumer-level signal booster.

For people in extremely rural areas, this may be the one they want to get any coverage. For city slickers, expect extended coverage. 

Most people can expect a coverage area of 3,500 to 5,000 sq ft with a best case scenario going all the way up to 7,500 sq ft.  

If you have extremely poor signal (remote area) or need wide coverage (large building), the weBoost Connect 4G-X is their new best friend. 

Cell Phone Signal Booster For Commercial Buildings

WilsonPro 70 Plus (Model #: 463127)

wilson pro 70 plus signal booster

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Commercial Building
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

Cellular boosting solutions for buildings range from 25K to 100K sq ft. although it's possible to go up to 500K and beyond. The WilsonPro 70 Plus is the sweet spot with coverage up to 50,000 sq ft. But of course, real-world use puts it at 25,000 to 35,000 sq ft with spot coverage for priority areas. 

Many of our professional installers and their enterprise customers report much better service.
