From Uniden, the Most Trusted Name in Wireless
Uniden has been a household name for decades, keeping you connected with cordless telephones and CB radios. Now they’ve shifted their focus to cellular and are dedicated to bringing you the highest quality signal booster on the market.
Few things are more frustrating than weak cellular signal causing dropped calls, hanging web pages, frozen video pages, or slow texts. Uniden U65C cellular boosters provide the antidote to your frustration by boosting cellular signals in buildings for all North American cell carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. It greatly enhances cell service for all your wireless devices (smartphones, notebooks, hotspots, etc.). Further, it works regardless of phone model (iPhone, Android, Samsung Galaxy, etc) for up to 10 devices at once.
Bring Great Cellular into Your Home
The Uniden U65C is a simple, reliable, industrial quality amplifier. It can be easily placed within a home, whether on a surface or in a closet. It will boost signal strength on all available cellular networks, no matter where you are. Rural, suburban, urban – if you have some cellular signal outside, you’ll get it even stronger inside.
The Uniden U65C provides up to +65 dB of gain under best conditions, translating to a maximum of 4,000 sq ft of coverage. Strength of outdoor cellular signal will affect the amount of effective coverage you can expect with a signal booster, including the Uniden U65C. The stronger the signal outside, the more coverage you can expect inside.
Outdoor Antenna Options
There are a few outdoor antenna options and connector options each of which have pros and cons.
Omni Antenna: A simple antenna that can be easily installed on a roof. The best option for strong signal areas, an omni antenna provides the least gain but most total carrier coverage.
Yagi “11” Antenna: A long 11” Yagi directional antenna. Needing to be aimed toward your nearest cell tower, a Yagi antenna is a bit harder to install than an omni antenna, but provides higher gain. Better for weaker signal areas.
N-Type Connector: N-Type connectors are used with 50-Ohm coaxial cable. Thicker than cables with F-Type termination, N-Type cable is more difficult to run but has far less loss over long distances.
F-Type Connector: F-Type connectors are used with 75-Ohm cable, such as the common RG-6. These cables are easy to run and common in small homes, but have higher loss than 50-Ohm cable.
No more dropped calls, slow internet, & disrupted service
The Uniden U65C is a great cell phone signal booster for those who need a multi-carrier, targeted cell phone booster. It features an indoor panel antenna for maximum power on the inside.
The Uniden U65C mobile signal booster is useful for people who rely on their cell phones for their home offices. If you require a stronger cellular signal to stay in contact with customers, vendors, remote employees, your employer, and everyone else in your life, the Uniden U65C cell phone signal amplifier can help. It covers up to 5,000 sq ft under best conditions. Real-world results puts it around 2000-3000 sq ft. Of course, depending on your outside signal strength and outside antenna mounting option, you may get more or less coverage.

Some providers may not consent to the use of this device on their network. If you are unsure, contact your provider. You MUST operate this device with approved antennas and cables as specified by the manufacturer. Antennas MUST be installed at least 20 cm (8 inches) from any person. You MUST cease operating this device immediately if requested by FCC or a licensed wireless service provider.
WARNING: California's Proposition 65
Installing any consumer signal booster setup is fairly simple. There are five steps:
- Install Outside Antenna.
- Connect to the Amplifier.
- Connect all cables.
- Power on.
The most “difficult” part is installing the Outside Antenna.
You’ll need some general handyman skills but nothing too specialized. If you prefer having someone else do the job, you can also contact your local general contractor, electrician, or anyone who’s installed a satellite TV dish.
- Find The Best Outside Signal: egin by finding the best signal outside your house. This is done by walking around the perimeter of your home and either using the number of bars on your phone (ok method), smartphone apps (good method), or Field Test Mode (great method) to find the best location. Pro tip: Locating the side of your home getting the best signal is the MOST CRUCIAL step of the installation process.
- Install Outside Antenna: The area with the best signal is where you will mount the Outside Antenna. Place the antenna as high up as possible, ideally on the roof, although the fascia or gable is acceptable. It’s important that the Outside Antenna should be on or near the edge of the roof pointing away from the house to the cell tower and NOT pointing across the roof since it may cause interference with the Inside Antenna.
- Connect to Amplifier: Once the Outside Antenna is mounted, connect the included RG-6 cable to the Outside Antenna and to the “Outside Antenna” port on the amplifier. Some run cable into the attic, others prefer using the window-entry cable. It’s all a matter of preference and aesthetics and where you want to locate the amplifier. Pro tip: The amplifier does all the heavy lifting for boosting signal and will get warm. Keep it in a well-ventilated area.
- Install Inside Antenna: Once the cable is connected to the “Outside Antenna” port of the amplifier, do the same for the “Inside Antenna” port. Some prefer having the Inside Antenna mounted on the ceiling, others prefer the wall, and some prefer using the stand and placing it in a well-trafficked area. Again, it’s all a matter of preference and aesthetics. The most important point is to have the inside antenna located in the area you need signal the most. Pro tip: Having enough separation between the two antennas prevents oscillation. Make sure there is at least 20 feet vertical or 50 feet horizontal distance between the two.
- Power on: Plug in the power supply to the Amplifier and to the wall outlet. The amplifier will sync up and if you see all green lights, then green means GO! Check to see near the inside antenna how much better signal you’re getting. Pro tip: Any post-installation adjustments like relocating the Omni Antenna will require rebooting the amplifier. Simply unplug the power supply for 5-10 seconds and replug to reboot the system.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Uniden U65C can support numerous devices. However, we tend to suggest a maximum of ten. Should you need more, we recommend a more powerful booster, such as the Uniden U65C.
There are certain cases where your system could be experiencing oscillation. This can be attributed to either the quality of your input signal or having your signal (outdoor) antenna and distribution (indoor) antenna too close together. Please review the following guidelines to help resolve this issue:
- Adjust the direction of the signal (outdoor) antenna. If the system is receiving a very high input signal, you can point your signal (outdoor) antenna away from the cellular tower to reduce the strength of the input signal and therefore, reduce the oscillation. Alternatively, if your system is receiving a very poor-quality signal (weak and unusable signal), you can point your signal (outdoor) antenna more directly towards the cellular tower to increase the strength of the input signal. Sometimes this may require completely repositioning the antenna to a location where you can achieve a line of site to the tower.
- Increase the separation between the signal (outdoor) antenna and the distribution (indoor) antenna. This can be achieved by increasing the distance between the two antennas or by placing barriers between them, such as moving the distribution (indoor) antenna to an adjacent room where there would be an additional wall separating them from the signal (outdoor) antenna.
Price and power. These model numbers represent the maximum dB gain of the respective boosters. The higher the number, the greater the maximum power.
We recommend boosters with the highest power when:
- You need to cover more area
- You have weaker outside signal
Get the most powerful booster you can if you live in a weak signal area. You’ll see the difference in coverage.
In order to correct a weak signal, these are your best options:
- Adjust the aim of the outdoor antenna or replace it with a higher gain antenna.
- Move the indoor antenna.
- Increase or decrease the number of distribution (indoor) antenna.
- Purchase a more powerful signal booster.
If your antenna setup is full of low-gain antennas with high-loss cable, you will see decreased results. Similarly, if you have too many indoor antennas, you are reducing the power of each individual antenna. However, if you’re expecting one antenna to cover your entire complicated layout, that is unlikely as well.
If all this sounds complicated, that’s because it can be. Call us at 1-800-470-6777 with any questions – toll free.
You may not always observe more bars on your signal meter because of the signal spreading out from the antenna. Decibels are measured on a logarithmic scale; if your phone has a db meter, adding 3db is a significant increase of 2 times, 6db is 4 times, and 10db is 10 times.
Bars are subjective and not a good way to measure the efficacy of your booster. If you’re not receiving any noticeable gain in dB measurement, then there is likely another problem – either oscillation between your antennas, not having enough gain amongst your components, or having too weak outside signal.
It can. However, you will need to be able to access to your roof or elevated area to install the outside antenna and have permission from your landlord or the building owner.
Registration with your carrier is required by FCC regulations. Instructions will be provided with your U65C signal booster, and the process takes roughly 5 minutes.
Yes! Bear in mind that this should be done primarily in areas with strong outside signal, but adding antennas can more evenly distribute the signal in your building or home and improve its overall performance.
No, you cannot protect cellular signal with a password. Everyone who enters your home or office will receive boosted signal.
All Uniden systems, including the U65C, can be returned within 90 days. It also comes with a 3 year warranty.
