It’s going to be hard to test until we hit the road, but it seems like a simple install.
The Weboost guy told me their outside cable would hook directly to the coax fitting (type A). He was wrong, the supplied cable is type B and I needed to order an adapter.
All depends on the weboost you get. The weboost 65 uses a 75 ohm cable with regular coax and the one you got uses 50 ohm cable with the type B connector.
We got the weboost 65 because the amplifier was better but instead of using the directional antenna we got an omnidirectional that I mounted to a 7 ft marine antenna powered by an actuator on the top of the Airstream.
It works really well.
It uses 50 ohm cable and then I use a 50 to 75 ohm connector into the amp.
The weboost systems are designed to use both 50 and 75 ohm so mixing and matching isn't an issue.
You can see the antenna in the attached pic.
I have a switch mounted inside the Airstream to raise and lower the mast.
We leave the weboost amplifier powered off when not needed if the peplink router has good reception.
In areas with bad reception we will turn on the weboost to give the peplink a little boost.
The other thing mounted to our acuated antenna is a Mikrotik Groove Wi-Fi grabber that is plugged into the WAN port in the peplink so I can grab wifi signals that may be usable (most campground wifi isn't usable)
At home when I use my Airstream as an office it grabs the home wifi and rebroadcasts over the Airstreams network.
