The Iridium Beam Active Antenna RST740 is intended for use in land and maritime applications where long cable runs are necessary to reach the desired antenna placement and the terminal.
Iridium Beam Antenna RST740 Features
When an installation surpasses 20 meters / 60 feet, it is more cost effective to employ an Active/Powered Iridium antenna, which allows for much thinner and less expensive cable to be stretched up to 100 meters / 300 feet, which would not be possible with a passive Iridium antenna. The Iridium Beam Active Antenna RST740 works with all Beam products and Iridium devices, but it requires the use of an approved Beam Active Antenna cable to handle power amplification through the RF line to the antenna.

Installed a few of these on a couple of my ships and even one of my offices as a test run; very impressed!! The signal I get between my ships has been a lot stronger since the upgrade, I'll be doing the rest of my ships and offices next season for sure when it is in the budget. Thanks to Apollo, the service is really the best!!
