No service in mobile home


No service in mobile home

I just bought an Evo 4G and get excellent service at home in Milwaukee, whether inside or out.

But I just spent a couple weeks at our mobile home about 30 minutes northwest of Tomahawk, WI

(zip code 54487).  The exact address is 11191 Old 8 Rd, Tomahawk, WI 54487.

Most of the time while I was inside the mobile home, my phone showed "No Service" but occassionally

I'd get notified of a new e-mail, but was unable to make any calls inside.

When I'd go outside I would be lucky to get even 1 bar of signal.  I'd dial the phone, but the person on

the other end said that I was dropping out quite a bit and so were they.  The data would be a bit better

than dial-up, but not very stable.

Are there any ways for me to improve my reception?

I had hoped to replace my dial-up internet access with the mobile hotspot on my Evo 4G, but at this

rate I don't think I will be able to.

Unfortunately DSL and cable are not available, only satellite and I am not going to spend $80/month

when I am just up there for weekends or a couple weeks in the summer.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
