Signals Unlimited Inc.

ST. GEORGE, Utah — Working to meet the increasing demands of consumers and businesses for better cellphone coverage in the Chambersburg, Pa., area, Signals Unlimited Inc., an installer of home audio and video equipment, has become a certified installer of Wilson Electronics’ line of cellular signal boosters.

Weak signals can be caused by distance from the nearest cell tower, hills or dense foliage between a tower and home or building, or many of the components used in newer thermally efficient commercial buildings and residences, which often prevent cell signals from penetrating exterior walls.

Earning Wilson Certified Installer status establishes Signals Unlimited Inc. as an expert provider and installer of indoor signal-boosting products and technologies made by Wilson Electronics. Wilson’s boosters are designed to deliver a strong, reliable cellular signal inside buildings for voice and data communication. Increasing the signal strength not only results in fewer dropped connections and “dead zones,” but in faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for cellular devices.

For more information, call Signals Unlimited at 717-369-2999.



Ludwick Eye Center

Ludwick Eye Center is collecting gently used eyeglasses for Lions Clubs International and Respectacle, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 127 million people worldwide are estimated to be in need of glasses, including many Americans. Whether due to lack of access or inability to pay the costs, many of those with severe vision problems that can be easily corrected with prescription lenses are not getting the eyeglasses they need.

Through the Lions Recycle for Sight Program, donated glasses are collected by local Lions clubs and delivered to a regional Lions eyeglass recycling center. There, Lion volunteers clean and sort the eyeglasses by prescription size, then package and ship them to humanitarian distribution teams. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries.

Respectacle uses the Internet to facilitate redistribution of quality, used eyeglasses donated by members of the community. They are cleaned, categorized and loaded into Respectacle’s online database. Individuals without the financial resources to pay for their glasses can make a request through Respectacle’s website; all that is needed is an eye doctor’s prescription. Individuals simply go to www.respectacle.org/search, enter prescription numbers, then browse through the selection of glasses that approximates their prescription.

Eyeglasses may be donated at the Ludwick Eye Center locations at 825 5th Ave., Chambersburg, Pa.; 1647 E. Main St., Waynesboro, Pa.; and 1150 Professional Court, Suite B, Hagerstown. No appointment is needed.

For more information, call 717-262-9700 or send an email to lecadmin@ludwickeyecenter.com.
