External Handset Antenna

The external antenna provides improved satellite signal reception when used on the move (e.g. in boats or cars) or in areas at the edge of the Thuraya coverage. Simply connect the antenna cable with the SatSleeve and place the magnetic mounted antenna in a position with direct line of sight to the Thuraya satellite.

The antenna is a magnetic mounted passive antenna which is IP66 rated and comes with a 5m antenna cable. It does not require pointing towards the satellite and the rugged design ensures a reliable performance even in harsh conditions.
