My apartment has metal siding, thick walls, you name it… my cell reception sucks. I own a samsung I330 palm phone. The reception is not so great either.
I am looking to make some sort of antennae or amplifier in order to increase my reception. Missing calls due to no signal has been causing problems.
So, I have an External antennae port like the one seen there.
I am planning to somehow create a temporary wire antennae that will by mounted outside on the balcony which is connected to the port. I am not willing to pay 20$ for that adaptor. Are there other ways to connect an adaptor to the ext. antennae port aside from just wrapping a wire around it? What would be the best material (metal) to use in order to get the best reception?
In general, what materials should I use to make this antennae? Help me build one!
Now for the electrical engineers: Are there any schematics for a phone reception amplifier so I will not be restricted by a wire?
