Not least because I'd want a huge 5th wheel to go touring with.

Agreed, our favourite holidays have been in RV's round the Parks in the Rockies, which we've been doing since '79 every two years, but I always fancied the 5th wheels, but never found one for rental with a prime mover. Nor, sadly, an RV with a toad. >:(

Is the garage conversion now off the table? If not, have you considered extending your existing gas supply externally to the new kitchen? This was done on my first extension for about 6 meters, although I subsequently moved it indoors, running it through two block walls and parallel to radiator pipes inside skirting boxes, all in 15mm pipe, but still plenty of pressure to operate the gas hob. :-\

Well, if you can get a half decent Signal outside, you could install a Mobile Repeater Booster system, they do work if installed properly, bottom line its an outside Aerial as high as possible on the House, ideally facing your best Signal Radio Mast, some decent cable feeding the Box of Tricks, then more decent cable feeding the internal Aerial(s).

Ive done a few of these installs in the past for people who are stuck, needs to be done properly as they key is to get as much isolation between the external and internal aerials, then choose your poison on the Box of tricks as to which Mobile Bands you want to cover.

Other option and probably cheaper is to install another form of Mobile Box that works through your internet Connection, but that generally will only boost Voice Calls.

Thks Chris, I only need it for voice calls so could you PM me details of that please. :y
As you say Plusnet dont do the Home Booster box but EE do, as far as Im aware the EE ones are Open Microcells (Open to All including Virtual Sims) unlike the Vodafone Sure Signal Boxes where you have to pre register what Numbers you want to work through it.

So ideally an EE Box should in theory work, all you need is an account with EE, maybe a cheap 30 day or PAYG Sim on there Network and then convince them you need a Box for poor coverage for your EE Sim.

But its been a while since I messed with these boxes so please do some homework first.

Edit - Found a Video on the EE Box here -.

On the PN forums, a lot of people are having similar difficulties, so I suspect EE will be reluctant to give out these boxes unless I have some sort of contract with them. I shall ask anyway.

Thanks

With all the tech wizards on here, I am surprised no-one has a solution to this, other than change back to Vodafone, whose signal was worse, but do offer boosters.  :-\ :-\ :-\

You could try O2 or anybody else that runs on the O2 network (giffgaff for example)
Ive used my giffgaff phone to make calls in your village ok  :y

Thanks Dave, unfortunately I'm in a village blackspot, and O2 is only avlbl 100yds or so away. :(

Can't afford to down size, as mentioned above, far too much "stuff" to get rid off. So just have do the 5th extension to improve storage, and let the kids clear it out.:-[ :-[ :-[

All very exciting options, but unfortunately they do not assist in improving the signal indoors. ::)

I get a lousy signal at home, 1 or 0 bars, plusnet do not support wifi calling, or supply a booster, although the EE carrier does if signed up with them. Any ideas how to boost my signal? On iPhone5s

Unclear Shackeng - you mean a valve on the sprayer?

Ron.

Yes, by sawing off the bottom section of the hand pump (mine was a Killaspray), and fitting a schrader valve in it. Then just pressurise to whatever you feel lucky with. ::) I use about 40psi, which is plenty to fill the box from empty. :y
I also use it for all my other spraying requirements on another bottle. It saves all that tedious pumping. :y
