Iridium Active Antenna Cable

Use this antenna cable with your Iridium active antenna. Available in 75, 100, 125 and 150ft lengths, and is compatible with every Iridium active antenna.

Ideal for Iridium Satellite Phone Installations in Buildings

Iridium active antenna cables are compatible with all Iridium active antennas, such as the BEAM RST740. An active Iridium antenna should be used when installing your iridium satellite phone and docking station in a large building that requires antenna cabling longer than 50ft (15m).

Cable Runs Longer than 150 Feet

Iridium active antennas, such as the BEAM RST740 can support antenna cable runs up to 340 feet in length. However, once your installation calls for antenna cabling longer than 150 feet, you’ll need much larger cable types in order to maintain the satellite signal over this distance. These larger cable types are expensive and difficult to install by untrained professionals. They are also extremely costly to ship—making them unattractive for non-local customers. As such, we don’t offer any active Iridium antenna cables longer than 150 feet on our web-shop.

If your installation calls for antenna cable runs longer than 150 feet. Please give us a call—we’ll be happy to provide a solution.


Iridium Active Antenna Cables

These cable kits consist of two cables. The main cable is made of larger LMR400 cable to ensure signal strength is maintained over the longer distance. Because LMR400 is quite a stiff cable, we include a short, flexible jumper cable. The jumper is made of LMR240 cable, which is more flexible and creates a “softer”, more forgiving connection point when attached to your Iridium satellite phone or docking station.
