Essential Info

If you have a Wireless Extender System installed in your home to improve reception for PCS-based or 850 MHz cell phones and have installed the Wireless Extender Outdoor Antenna for additional coverage, you can use the Wireless Extenders zBoost Grounding Kit as an antenna ground for this outdoor antenna to help eliminate the risks associated with ungrounded electrical components. The Wireless Extender System and outdoor antenna are sold separately.

  • Instructions
  • More Info


    An antenna ground serves two primary purposes. During an instance of stray electrical charge, such as a short or a nearby lightning strike, the antenna ground provides a lower-resistance path to a safe discharge point so that that charge won't instead reach your delicate components. Secondly, most areas of the country are bombarded with all types of radio signals. The Wireless Extender Outdoor Antenna is designed to receive only PCS/cellular signals, but its lead-in wire shield can pick up other electrical noise that can be drained off the cable at the electrical ground connection, leaving a cleaner signal when arriving at your Wireless Extender's inside unit.

    To install the Wireless Extenders zBoost Grounding Kit, determine where the strongest cell signal is available outside your home. Locate the potential ground sources: the electrical service ground rod, the grounding conductor wire attached to the ground rod, the power service cut-off or breaker box enclosures, the metallic conduit attached directly to the power service cut-off or breaker box enclosures, or the grounded interior metal cold water piping system. Use the included clamps to bond to a ground access location close to where you will mount your Wireless Extender Outdoor Antenna.

    The variety of connection options is very helpful. The ground wire was a bit short for my needs.
