Post max power Reply with quote
i have a pcimax3000+ 1w version i would like to get a bit more power out of it like maybe 1.5w i dont need a full 3w or even a 15w booster as i need about 500 more ft of space covered

i see it say the 3w can do 4w
Quote:
RF output power: up to about 4W (3W model), depending on the model

but my 1w wont go over 1w like i said i do not need a lot more is there any hack or anything i can do to get a bit more power

What kind of antenna are you using?

By using a cheap dipole mounted on a good spot you'll probably double or more your range.

For best range look at the log-periodic, such as 0205. Of course it is not not omni-directional. But range improvement is huge.

You can use 2 with a combiner:
750W 2-way coaxial splitter (3xN connectors)
