Iridium Fixed Mast External Antenna
The Iridium Fixed Mast External Antenna is designed for use with all Iridium handsets and GO! devices including the Iridium 9505, 9505A, 9555, 9575 and the Iridium GO!.
The Iridium Fixed Mast External Antenna broadens the reception of your Iridium handset or GO! devices and delivers the clarity and performance you need for permanent land-based or marine applications.
The Iridium Fixed Mast External Antenna is perfect on a vessel or a remote location that requires the use of an Iridium satellite handset or GO! device without a clear view of the sky. Installation is quick and simple requiring a standard 1″ 14 TPI mount positioned and antenna attached with a clear view of the sky. A single antenna cable is then run from the antenna to the Iridium handset or GO! device for operation.
Special Note on Mounting the Antenna
The external fixed-mast antenna is intended to mount on top of a standard 1″ threaded antenna mount. It does not come with an antenna mount. We don’t include an antenna mount because there are hundreds of options out there – mast mount, pole mount, spreader mount, backstay mount, rail mount, etc – and it’s best if you pick up the antenna mount that works right for your unique setup.
Standard 1″ threaded antenna mounts can be easily and inexpensively found at your local marine supply store.
