Joplin Trucker’s Review Of The weBoost Drive Reach OTR Signal Booster
Joplin, MO…. Owner-operator Dave Foster has been trying out Wilson Electronics’ weBoost Drive Reach OTR Cellphone Signal Booster for the past few months. Dave has been an owner-operator for the past 39 years and is leased to CFI.
Installation of the Drive Reach OTR took Dave about 30 minutes as he wanted to hide the wires coming into the cab of his 2003 Kenworth W900. Dave indicated that it could have been done in about 10 minutes if he hadn’t taken the time to route the wires. There is an antenna that attaches to the mirror bracket, that routes to a signal box inside the truck, which transmits the signal to the phone wirelessly. Dave ran the booster wire through a rubber grommet that his CB wire runs through however, the cable is strong enough and designed to run through the door frame and have the door closed on it. Dave set up his unit with a lighter plug for power, which requires him to have the key turned on to operate, but it can be hard wired into the fuse box so that it is on all of the time. The unit can be set up for permanent installation or slip-seating.
Dave was impressed with the weBoost Drive Reach OTR booster’s performance. He said that in areas that his cellphone showed a single signal bar, the weBoost signal booster, when turned on, increased the signal immediately most of the time to a full signal. Two areas where Dave has always had signal problems is US 70 between Clovis and Roswell, New Mexico and US 90 between Sanderson and Del Rio, Texas. The weBoost Drive Reach OTR provided a full cellphone signal with no dropped calls in the problem areas. Dave also observed a lot of oil field trucks equipped with signal boosters in West Texas. Dave remarked, “Wilson Electronics’ antennas have always been quality made and I have had good luck with them. I was excited to install the weBoost Drive Reach OTR Signal Booster on my truck.”
