Ok....those of you who have shrines (or altars) in your home,

A little background. I live in an area where cellphone service has been pretty spotty at best. Up until I bought my new Nokia phone, I could not get a cellphone signal at home unless I went outside of my house and halfway up my driveway. The only exceptions to this is there was a "hole" for reception in my house where a signal could actually get through, without fail and that was directly over my altar / shrine! [livejournal.com profile] userbenu just mentioned to me this evening that it is the same way in the dorms at college. In the brick building he is in, he gets no signal unless he is out in the glass enclosed halway OR in his room directly over his shrine.

So....I know this is like the most bizzare question ever, but is this the case for everyone?! I know not everyone on my friendslist is Kemetic, but many of you are pagan and have altars and/or shrines in your home. DO you find this happens for you, too?

God's got a signal, there is definitely no doubt about that! Well....at least in my house! ;-)

I always get signal, so I'm not sure.

I just went and tried it at all 6 of my shrines, and it didn't work in any. Then again, I live in a basement room and my phone doesn't get a signal where my parents' phones do.

And the signal here is always shitty.

:looks out window at cell tower less than 1/4 mile away

I get fivers on my bed.
I get fivers in my shed
I get fivers in my car
I get fivers at the bar.
I have fivers with my wine.
I have fivers at my shrine.
See that cell tower over there?
I get fivers everywhere.

I need a new brain- it's clear the the RFI from the cell tower is frying my cerebellum.

I usually get the complete opposite, but that's Mom for you. The closer I get to anything dedicated to Her, the less anything technological works.

Is that why all of my electrical appliances break or don't work right? It never fails: I don't have one piece of electronic equipment that isn't quirky.

I'm really inclined to believe so.

I don't bring technology into the shrine room, especially a telephone, so I never tried. I'm not to be disturbed when in the shrine room.

Nope. I get a signal everywhere at The Casa. My altar has moved, too, thanks to Wes and nothing has changed.

Hard to say, because the signal is excellent everywhere in the house.

I get a signal everywhere in this house, so I can't say.
but I do know that one of my friends has his cellphone gain or lose its charge randomly in his girlfriend's altarspace. *shrug*

I definately get better reception in my bedroom (where all of my shrines are) than in the rest of the house. It's not really stronger right *over* any of them though.

The apartment that I live in isn't good on cell phone signal period. I don't think I get a signal anywhere ... however, you bring up a great point and I'll go around the house with my husband's cell phone, as I don't own one.

As long as there's a Sprint tower nearby, I'll get reception. But even Sprint has it's issues. My signal drops in and out all the time.

I can't really say. The Japanese make some really good phones, it works everywhere except inside the ship.

Kai-Imakhu, may i add you to my friends' list?

Hm. No effect on my phone (it's 2 or 3 bars, sometimes 4, anywhere in the building).

But I had lots of random computer trouble when I used to have my state shrine in the same room with our computers (in the house [livejournal.com profile] merybast, Jeff and I rented), until I put up a divider to split the room into two parts. I wouldn't really expect my Mom to help out with getting a signal anyhow :)

Hotep KI Niankh I added you to my friends list. To answer your question I get cellphone signal around my shrine.

Hotep KI Niankh!

I just added you also and yes I get a signal where I keep my statues(no perminate shrine yet), but no where else unless I go outside.
