Those "boosters" aren't actually boosters, they're miniature towers. Inside the "booster" is a repeater, just like a real full-size 100ft tall tower. When your phone connects with a real tower, that tower connects to another tower which connects to another tower etc etc until it reaches a land based substation where your signal can by sent by some other means.

If you're in an area with weak coverage, you can buy one of these "boosters" to connect with a tower and then your cel-phone connects with the booster instead of trying to reach the tower. Since these boosters are miniaturized towers, they're not only very sophisticated with their channel-hopping and encryption but they're also federally regulated. No one in their right mind would even think of making one because it would be darn stupid to risk getting federal charges pressed against them for better cel-phone coverage.
APU what?

Heck I didn't know it would be illegal to make one! Thanks though for telling me! I think it's kinda stupid to make it illegal but anyway, thanks.
