Iridium Passive Antenna
Iridium satellite phones were designed to operate with a passive antenna, either an element attached directly to the handset or a remote aerial connected with a short length of coaxial cable. This antenna will work with any Iridium satellite phone or docking station and will help keep your signal good and strong!
Since Iridium satellite phones were designed to operate with some sort of antenna this is a great addition to help complete your global satellite communications solution. A signal loss of more than 3dB in a remote antenna’s connecting cable degrades performance due to attenuation of both the received and transmitted signals. A 3dB loss corresponds to approximately 20m of LMR600 or 6m of LMR240 coaxial cable, lengths that clearly restrict the mounting options for the antenna using standard down-leads. It is perfect for permanent in-building or marine applications and is designed for free-air operation, no ground plane.
