I have an easy project that I wanted to try, but I wanted to bring it here first to see what the general feeling was about it working.
Off and on, I’ve wanted to find something that would boost my garage remote. I’ve seen projects that involve soldering variations of extended antennas, but I really didn’t want to modify the remote.
I was searching today and it dawned on me that I might be able to use an old analog 120 volt television signal booster to do the job. Sort of like a repeater.
What I was thinking was to take the signal booster and place it in the garage. Next , I would have a cheap antenna feeding into the input and the have another cheap antenna being fed from the output.
When a weak garage remote is pressed, the faint signal is boosted up to where the garage opener could then see it better and then react.
