Holiday Guft Guide Day 32 - STIX Cell Phone Signal Booster Review and Giveaway

During the Holiday Season it seems like we are always in the car driving from one family members house to another.  For Thanksgiving alone we traveled round trip to St. George, to Ogden, and to Price.  If you're from Utah you'll know that it works out to about 14 hours in the car for one holiday.  And lots of the trip was spent driving through canyons where we get little or no cell phone service.

Because of this, I was super excited to try out the Stix Cell Phone Booster from the RepeaterStore.


 With the unpredictable Utah winter weather and the mountainous  terrain, anything that would boost our cell signal would be highly welcome.

The Stix Cell Ranger Kit is super easy to install.  All we had to do is put a magnetized antenna on top of our van and then plug the device in to our car.  The kit is wireless so it works with any phone or data card.


When we plugged the kit in, I was actually on the phone with my mother in law.  The connection instantly got better.

I noticed the most difference in our cell service on our way to Price.   Usually the phone cuts in and out and it's hard to hear the person on the other line.  During the parts of the canyon where I knew service was the worst, I actually plugged and unplugged the Stix Cell Ranger and watched the bars go up and down within 6 seconds of either action.

The ranger didn't magically give me service where there was absolutely none.  But it did strengthen and focus the service even when there was barely a trace.

To Buy It - Give the gift of safety and peace of mind this Holiday Season and get a Stix Cell Ranger.  The RepeaterStore also sales Cell Boosters for use in the home -WiEx Soho YX545- and office - WiEx Soho YX545.

To Win It - The RepeaterStore wants everyone to be safe this Holiday Season, so they are giving a Stix Signal Booster to one of you (MSRP $149)
