Our low-profile Iridium antenna is Iridium-frequency-only
allowing its narrow-band tuning to provide optimum Iridium performance. Why?
Other aviation antennas must go “wide-band” to capture the nearby GPS frequency
for FAA TSO which reduces efficiency. But we are the first with a specially
designed, Iridium-only aviation patch that earned the new
FAA TSO C159a for satellite communication. Designed for both fixed wing and
rotorcraft airframes, and operating with both Iridium-based voice and data
communications devices, the single channel aviation patch provides continuous
coverage from 1616.0 MHz to 1626.5 MHz for excellent Iridium operation.
Mechanical configuration is our popular aviation “Teardrop” footprint with
injection molded radome and aircraft aluminum base plate.
