Abstract:People are depending to an increasing degree on cell-phones for communication, including in emergency situations. Cellular coverage is not, however, uniform, and areas of marginal coverage are common. A device for increasing cell-phone reliability in areas of marginal coverage was designed, built and then tested in the laboratory. A prototype of a folding version was built and tested in both the laboratory and the field.
