Using a lightning surge protector in most cases is always recommended, particularly if the kit is going be installed in an area with frequent lightning. The lightning surge protector should be installed in line with the cable and near the amplifier, and should be properly grounded.
The outside antenna is positioned high on your building, made of metal and exposed to the elements – very attractive to lightning! Thus placing the surge protector between the outside antenna and the amplifier unit is advised in order to protect the amplifier.
The SureCall lightning protector includes a lifetime warranty replacement gas discharge element. Insert the SC-LP protector to the outside antenna cable. Ground the unit and connect to the 2 ft. jumper cable. Then, connect the cable to the amplifier outside antenna port.

Adjustable and easy to use control dials are used to balance all carrier frequencies independently. The SureCall Fusion5 is approved by all major carriers and equipped with built in safeguards to completely eliminate interference to cell towers.
- Highest 4G data rate in the industry
- Simple Plug and Play operation
- Fully compliant with new FCC certification standards and approved by all major US carriers
- Eight RSSI detectors for all inputs and outputs
The SureCall Fusion5 kit comes with a choice of two outside antennas:
The SC-288W Omni Outdoor Antenna has 4dB gain. Omni antennas receive and send signals in a 360º radius. They can receive signals from multiple cell towers and is best for boosting signal on many different carriers. They are excellent in most situations where the existing outside signal strength is moderate to strong.
The SC-230W-S Yagi Outdoor Antenna has up to 5dB of gain. It is a directional antenna which can reach cell towers up to 30 miles away. It needs to be set up pointing in the direction towards the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction. It’s very powerful at picking up weak signal in one particular direction.
The SureCall Fusion5 kit also has a choice of two inside antennas:
The SC-222W Omni Dome Antenna is a multi-band omni-directional plastic dome antenna that gathers signals from all sides. It has 6dB gain and is designed for central locations with 360º coverage. The antenna range is dependent on three prime factors:
1) Physical obstructions
2) Power generated by the booster and
3) Reception from outside signal received and distributed by the outside antenna.
The SC-248W Panel Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10dB gain. Panel antennas allow optimum reception to targeted areas. It can be mounted to either the wall or ceiling.
