Wilson Sleek - Marine Yacht testing

There are many ways to test the cellular signal enhancement equipment we sell. This year I have gone beyond the standard vehicle and home testing as my passion for boating and a close friend that is a professional Yacht Captain has allowed me to crew two boat trips on the Tennessee, Cumberland, Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Since May I have logged close to 2000 miles on the water while thoroughly testing several cellular signal enhancement devices offered by

The discovery that I made was that the signal propagation from the cellular towers is poor in the river valleys and that the use of a cellular signal booster is imperative for both recreational boaters and commercial barge tugboats. I noticed immediately that every commercial tugboat that I passed had at least one but often times numerous cellular antennas likely mated to cellular signal boosters. Barge staff is deployed for 30 days so communication via personal cellular telephones and internet access via wireless modems is their only means of communication.

My most recent trip from Green Turtle Bay in Grand Rivers Kentucky to Lake City Minnesota was aboard a two million dollar 60 foot Sea-Ray with over one hundred thousand dollars of electronics. The Wilson Sleek model 815226 mated with the Wilson 12” magnetic antenna is the kit that I chose for this trip as I was limited on the carryon items that I could bring on the flight from Rochester to Paducah.

The Wilson Sleek proved to be a major asset in enhancing my cellular and data communication throughout the trip. There were several occasions that I found the phone in the Sleek cradle read full signal when other phones on the vessel read no service or had only displayed  one bar of signal. The optional suction cup window/dash mount
901132 was used to portabally mount the Wilson Sleek signal booster to the dash.

I affixed the antenna to the roof using the small grounding disc part number 859931 as the roof is composed of fiberglass. For a fixed application the Wilson 301130 would be the logical choice.

The Wilson Sleek is available from for a limited time at an introductory price of $99.

Cellynx 5Barz inventor/CEO resigns

According to a letter filed with the SEC, Daniel Ash has resigned from the Cellynx Group, Inc. The letter states that he was first removed from the position of CEO and later removed from the board. staff tested the 5Barz Cellynx product and was not impressed. The unit carries a hefty retail price of $299 in addition to a small profit margin for resellers. In testing the signal bars increased however data speeds were actually slower compared to using the unit with no amplification at all.

Wilson Electronics released in early 2010 the model 815226 Sleek ($99 Retail) that outperforms the 5Barz unit.

Reading through the information provided to the SEC, Cellynx has spent Millions of dollars on one single product that we feel will not survive in this competitive market.

Verizon U760 Antenna Solution - Customer Comment

Read what a customer in Virginia has to say about the antenna solution they received from for their Verizon USB Broadband modem Novatel U760:

Gentlemen - I just purchased and installed the Wilson Dual Band Trucker Celluar Antenna (often used in home applications) model 301101, the mirror mount, and the 20ft coax cable extension for connecting to my Novatel model 760 wireless USB modem. I subscribe to the Verizon broadband service in south west Virginia for my internet connection but live in a very weak signal area; The small window mount blade antenna I used was essential to get any signal. I felt your antenna was the solution to significantly improving my signal strength and communication speed - Verizon broadcasts 2 types of signals (1xRTT and EVDO I guess) that yield greatly different speeds - and I never achieved the higher speed EVDO connection. Your antenna has changed everything - I am delighted that I now connect most times on the high speed signal and am achieving data receive rates up to 800kbps compared to 120kbps max before on the 1xRTT signal. All the connections were made as you advertised and described them and the installation with your mount was quick and easy yet rugged. This is an excellent product that delivered exactly as advertised.

Regards, Robert - Virginia
