Globalstar 1700 Antenna Question

Post by K17NLV »

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I am new here.

I have a Globalstar 1700 that I am mounting in a rescue. I am using the GIK-1700 vehicle cradle (unless there is something better out there) and I need to find an NMO permanent mount antenna for it. I don't care for the magnet mount antenna that Globalstar offers and don't want either of the two big white marine style ones either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

You're talking about a satellite phone... the antenna is slightly more complex that an NMO mount, a piece of wire, and maybe a loading coil. They are active antennas with preamps inside, etc. The HX antenna is the best solution for a vehicle.
