WeBoost using satellite connections

My Airstream has connections for both cable and satellite on the side. I do not have a satellite receiver.

I want to install an exterior antenna for a WeBoost system to boost cell signals.

Can I use the satellite connection on the side of the trailer for the RG6 cable from the exterior antenna and avoid making a hole in the trailer? I would then put the WeBoost amplifier next to the DVD player where the satellite cable appears inside the trailer.

Anyone see a problem with this?

As long as the antenna cable is RG-6 itís worth a try. The only issue would be if the internal cable is badly shielded or not decent quality cable. Itís not going to damage the hardware, if thatís a concern...

Works fine if you have a WeBoost that uses f connectors, like the RV 65.
