Introduction
The Beam Iridium Dual Mode Whip Antenna (RST706) is
intended for Land based applications. Designed to work with
Beam Iridium products and other Iridium based devices. Iridium Dual Mode Whip Antennas (RST706) excel in
SUV/4WD/RV and Truck applications where a rugged
antenna giving the highest possible clearance above the roof
line is required. The antenna can be easily fitted to the bull
bar of a vehicle and has 5 meters (16 ft) of cable included.
