See: http://www.Net4TruthUSA.com/JeepRestoration/RadioBooster.htm for a complete report, photos, videos, and schematic diagram that support the allegation I make in this report as empirical fact. Any electronic technician or Ham Radio Operator van verify that the technical information presented here is entirely accurate. The Web page referenced above gives you information on solving a weak signal / noise problem, and shows you where to get products that actually work.

I purchased this item - an inline "signal amplifier" on eBay looking for a signal booster for my Jeep radio, because I have a short "trail antenna", and live in the New Jersey Pine Barrens which is a fringe area for the stations I like to listen to. I am a retired IBM engineer, so before I tore my dashboard apart to install this thing, I opened it up to see what makes it "tick". [continued below]....

.....

Well, a 10 microFarad capacitor and two resistors (see photos, video, and circuit diagram, on the above-referenced Web page) do NOT constitute a "signal amplifier" of any sort, and so the advertisement on on eBay and on Amazon (shame on you, Amazon, for not quality checking your products) are TOTAL FRAUDS.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of these units are being sold by sellers all over the Internet, and even on Amazon. No doubt, many of these sellers are not aware that the product is a ten cent P.O.S. that CANNOT POSSIBLY WORK, doesn't work, and contains no components that could be called "signal amplifier" or "signal booster" in any sense of the word.

Many people have devoted hours to installing this thing, and some have convinced themselves that it made a difference because they invested so much effort into its installation, but it is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE that the device can amplify a radio signal, because there are NO TUNED CIRCUITS, and absolutely NO SEMICONDUCTOR COMPONENTS in the device at all.

The guy who (supposedly) reviewed this thing on eBay saying that it boosted his reception must be experiencing the placebo effect or he's smoking something really good, because such circuitry CANNOT POSSIBLY boost any signal. The most it could possibly do is filter out some alternator whine (on AM signals). It is more than likely this guy (if he's real) inadvertently fixed a loose antenna connection while installing this thing.

AUTHOR: GeorgeV - ()

those "resistors" are not resistors, they are inductors and form a crude band pass filter which can amplify due to the foward biasing of the +12v.  although very crude any signals falling within the passband of the bandpass filter will have the 12 v dc level help it in amplitude.
