    The UC-1624-341R is a Quadrifilar Helix Antenna (4 cm/1.5" OD x 11 cm/4.5" H) designed for use with 1.6 GHz Iridium modems and transceivers. The Iridium network consists of a meshed constellation of low earth orbiting satellites (LEO satellites), enabling real-time, worldwide communications, even in remote locations lacking of a radio infrastructure. It is often the more economical means of real-time communications at sea, in a desert, or in the wilderness. In Asia, Africa, Oceania and Europe, the Thuraya satellite network is a close contender (for more information, see our Thuraya Antenna, UC-1614-341L model)

    The UC-1624-341R Iridium Antenna is compatible with Distributed Tactical Communications System (DTCS), Netted Iridium applications, which enable group communications within an Iridium satellite's spot beam.

    This antenna is broadband enough that it can be used to receive GPS (Global Positioning System) and Iridium signals simultaneously, when connected to radios supporting this dual capability, such as a DTCS-RO Iridium Handset.

    For embedded and weight sensitive applications (such as self-buoyant air and water platforms, like balloons and buoys), we offer a 30 gram (1 oz) lightweight version of the UL-1624-341R-LIGHT (select from above Base/Flange drop down menu). It is enclosed in a light housing, measuring 27.5 mm (1.08") OD x 99 mm (3.9") L, with an SMA Female connector at its bottom center.
