    I have recently purchased a weboost signal booster to amplify my cellphone signal to my room on the boat I work on. The signal is not strong enough to give me steady service where it is placed now. The best place to put it would be on top of the boat but running a new coaxial rg6 cable from up there is almost impossible. I was wondering if I could use the preexisting coaxial cable that is currently being used for the antenna for the TV. My question is if I can split the TV antenna and the signal booster antenna into one coaxial cable without them interfering with each other.

    I am an electrician out of Chicago, but I am not an RF expert. From what I know about RF, I would think it would work fine. There should be plenty of bandwidth in a RG 6 cable. The antenna cable should be a 75 ohm cable, is that what the cell phone booster uses? Put it after the TV signal booster due to frequency difference.

    I would try it.

    As long as there's some signal outside, they can multiply that signal up to 32 times to provide strong cellular reception inside homes, offices, and vehicles.

    Yes, cell signal boosters exist but if you need it for your boat, it is best to get one specifically designed for marine vessels: signalbooster com
