ASE Premium Powered Iridium Active Antenna - AA511

Break through the clutter and upgrade your Iridium Experience with an ASE Premium Active Antenna Kit

Iridium satellite phones were originally 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. Unfortunately, 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. This is where an active antenna comes in! With an Iridium Active Antenna you can expect a more versatile setup that will keep your signal good and strong effectively keeping you connected when you need it most. Also, since it is connecting you to the Iridium Network you have a connection on a global scope; even in the polar regions of the planet.

ASE Premium Powered Iridium Active Antenna Overview

With the ASE Premium Powered Iridium Active Antenna AA511 you have more room to work with from between your device and the antenna. A passive antenna gives you up to 20 meters / 66 feet of space but if more room is needed an active antenna may be the answer. The ASE Premium Powered Iridium Active Antenna will help keep your device connected and is the perfect for completing to any global communications solution from a fixed location.
