Calculating coverage area for your cellular signal amplifier is a simply process once you understand the basics. This week's pro tips video teaches how to calculate the coverage area for a building and walks through an example to see how it's done. There are a few things needed to be done to determine coverage area.

The equation below is how to determine the signal output.

Incoming Signal Strength         -         System Loss         +         Booster/Antenna Gain         =         Signal Output

This week's video will explain how do determine each part of the above equation and will also dicuss cable loss, loss from accessories, gain from anntenna, gain from booster, open air path loss and material absorption.
