Title: Apparatus and method for distributing wireless communications signals to remote cellular antennas

Abstract: An apparatus and method for transmitting telecommunications signals from a wired system to mobile receivers, includes a signal hub for receiving a telecommunications transmission signal for distribution to a mobile receiver and including first elements for measuring a power level of the received transmission signal, a multiplicity of distributed remote antenna drivers, each having a respective antenna, a controllable amplifier adapted to couple transmission signals to the antenna and second elements for measuring a signal power level of a transmission signal at the antenna, a network for coupling the transmission signal from the signal hub to one or more remote antenna drivers, and elements for determining a gain factor for each respective amplifier and thereby the transmission signal at each respective antenna in response to the measured received signal power level and the respective measured antenna signal power level.
