Iridium Passive Antenna Cable

Use this antenna cable with your passive Iridium antenna. Available in 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50ft. lengths, and is compatible with every passive Iridium antenna.

50ft. (15m) or Less

We use smaller, more flexible cable types for our passive Iridium antenna cables because they are less expensive and easier to install.

Iridium passive antennas can handle a maximum cable length of approximately 50ft (15m) when using these smaller, more flexible cable types. This is due to signal degradation over the distance of these small-sized cables.

It is possible to use a larger type of antenna cable to extend the distance of your passive Iridium antenna. However, larger antennas cables are thicker, less flexible, very costly, require expensive connectors, and are difficult to install.

Do You Need A Cable Longer Than 50ft. (15m)?

If your installation requires a cable length that is longer than 50ft (15m), we suggest using an Active Iridium Antenna, such as the RST740 instead of a passive one.

Short Cables

10Ft / 20Ft / 30Ft Cables

  • Cable Type: LMR240 Coaxial Cable — 10, 20, or 30 feet long
  • Connector Type: TNC-Male to TNC-Male
  • Cable Diameter: 0.24″ ( 6 mm)
  • Operating Temperature Range: -40 to 185ºF (-40 to 85ºC)

Long Cables

These longer 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 equipment. This jumper can be used at the antenna end, or the Iridium phone/Iridium docking station end of the installation.

Typically, we recommend using the jumper to connect the main antenna cable to your Iridium phone or docking station.
