Product Description

Marine weBoost Drive Reach Cell Signal Booster with 38-Inch High-Gain Antenna 470154

Features of the Marine weBoost Drive Reach high‑gain antenna system

  • Combines weBoost’s most powerful 5G/4G mobile cell phone signal booster with a high-gain marine whip antenna for the best possible signal while underway and while moored.
  • With its superior uplink power, the Drive Reach can get signal from towers that are twice as distant as other competing vehicle boosters.
  • RFI’s 38.2″ (90.7 cm) fiberglass marine antenna includes 16.4′ (5.0 m) of RG58 coax cable and a 1″ × 14‑thread ferrule that attaches to standard marine mounts. This antenna also has a quick-release feature for easy, fast setup and takedown. (Learn more.) Cable extensions using low-loss 400 coax are also available at additional cost.
  • Top Signal’s high-performance directional EDGE panel antenna mounts flush to walls; it also stands upright on any flat surface and can be moved about the boat. (Learn more.) This antenna connects to the booster with 10 feet of thin, flexible LMR195 coax cable.
  • Provides up to 10 feet of improved signal coverage from the inside antenna.
  • Use in your boat and in your car, truck, or SUV with two sets of antennas—just disconnect and move the booster and power supply for improved signal in both.
  • Boosts 5G, 4G LTE, and 3G cell signal for multiple users on all carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, UScellular, and more. (Learn more about 5G compatibility.)

The Drive Reach is the newest-generation cell phone signal booster for vehicles from Wilson Electronics. With its industry-leading uplink power (28.3–29.5 dBm), the Drive Reach will let you travel twice as far from cell towers compared to other boosters and still make a connection.

The 38″ RFI Q-Fit® marine antenna provides 4.5 to 6.5 dBi of signal gain, sending stronger signal to the Drive Reach booster for better inside cellular coverage and a stronger connection to the cell tower.

The inside Top Signal EDGE panel antenna can be placed where you need signal the most—the dining area, the helm, etc.—and moved as needed. You can also mount the EDGE panel antenna on a wall or ceiling with the mounting bracket (included) or with Command® Strips or similar adhesives (purchased separately). Ten feet of thin, flexible LMR195 coax cable connects the panel antenna to the booster.

Stay connected underway on lakes and rivers and in coastal waters. Experience faster 5G/4G data and fewer dropped calls, undelivered texts, and missed email messages.

Quick-release antenna for low-clearance passages

Many inland waterways have low minimum-clearance passages. RFI’s Q‑Fit® threaded quick-release connector provides fast, easy takedown and setup for low-clearance areas. The antenna attaches and detaches from its base in seconds.

 LTE Marine Antenna RFI Quick-Release 82-Inch Whip 8.5 dBi 698–2700 MHz with Ferrule & Cable TS210902 quick-release connector RFI’s whip antenna includes a threaded quick-release ferrule that allows you to remove and reattach the antenna in seconds. (Click to enlarge.)

Who is the Marine weBoost Drive Reach high‑gain antenna system for?

When having a usable cell phone signal in your boat isn’t a luxury, it’s a critical necessity.

  • Boaters who need improved cell signal while underway.
  • Boats that need better signal in a specific area, such as around the helm or at a dining table.
  • Boats that need amplified signal for multiple cellular carriers simultaneously.
  • Vessels that are used in remote waterways, where cell service is poor.
  • Government agencies (fish and wildlife service, harbor patrol, police or sheriff’s department, etc.).
  • Anyone who needs the best, most reliable cell phone connectivity on the water.
Motor yacht underway The Marine weBoost Drive Reach works on boats that are underway, at anchor, or dockside.

Do-it-yourself installation

You can install the Marine weBoost Drive Reach kit yourself; it does not require professional help.

  • You’ll need a standard-size 1-inch × 14 threaded marine mount for the omni marine antenna. (Powerful Signal offers a Shakespeare 4190 rail mount as an optional add‑on, above.)
  • Run the RG58 coax cable to the booster unit, securing the cable to the mast, tower, or hull. Use the 1′ FME-male/SMB-female jumper cable (included) to complete the connection to the booster.
    (If you use a 400 coax extension, the connection will be: RG58 cable → N‑female/FME‑male adapter → 400 coax → N‑female/SMA‑male RG58 jumper cable → SMA‑female/SMB‑female adapter → booster.)
  • Place the inside antenna on a flat surface or mount it on a bulkhead in the compartment where you need improved signal.
  • Run the LMR195 coax cable from the inside antenna to the booster. Use the included adapters to attach the cable to the SMB connector on the booster and N connector on the panel antenna.
  • Plug in the booster using the AC or DC power supply cables.
  • If the booster’s status light is solid red or blinking green/red, change the direction the inside panel antenna is pointing. (It should be facing away from outside antenna.)

Optional add-on power supplies

If you want to use your weBoost Drive Reach with an AC power source, we offer an optional 120V AC power supply.

We also offer an optional 12V DC hardwire power supply with an inline 3-amp fuse. The hardwire kit connects directly to your vessel’s DC power system, freeing up a 12V power socket and allowing for a less-cluttered installation.

To get the AC power supply, DC hardwire power supply, or both, use the dropdown option at the top of this page before clicking Add to Cart.
