Most people did not think about leaving their home without connecting our mobile phones to our bags or throwing bags, and traveling on the water is no exception. How are your friends called to remind them to bring sunlight, dinner, or call the babysitter to tell her that they are coming home later than planned?
Unfortunately, navigators often get a rough shock when they discover that a palm-sized mobile phone "does not signal" the water detection. But with a mobile phone signal amplifier kit you can often get a strong and clear signal.
You will need some products that are usually purchased separately, but sometimes as a package from the same manufacturer that is sold as a mobile phone signal buffers. The three components are a three watt mobile dual band signal amplifier, an antenna and an adapter that fits your mobile phone.
How does all this work? An external antenna and amplifier increase the signal strength to find the signals from a cell tower, then amplify and repeat on your mobile phone with an internal antenna on board the vessel. The size of the antenna required varies depending on the size of the vessel.
So if you have a cell phone, you do not have a VHF radio, right? Bad! Even with the signal amplifier kit, mobile phones do not have as close to VHF radios. And when you call your mobile phone for calling a Coastguard, it's harder to find time because radio control devices do not work with mobile phones. But when you're on the VHF channel 16, nearby boats can hear you and respond.
However, about 10 percent of daily calls are made to mobile phones, so just to be safe, US Coast Guard ships with a special mobile number can be used directly on most coastal areas: * CG Egypt * 24.
