This kit includes the connectors and adapters to permit the use of standard RG-6 cable with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio Antennas. This kit, when used with the included line amplifier, can extend the antenna cable up to 125 additional feet for a total of 145 feet. Multiple amplifiers (one Model SBA-1 for each 125 foot segment) can be used to make longer cables. This kit provides the flexibility to allow the installer to cut RG-6 cable to custom lengths and to use plenum rated RG-6 cable where fire codes require. A 3ft length of small diameter coaxial cable is supplied with an SMB plug to mate with the radio. An S-band rated line amp is also included. The amp(s) must be placed as shown in the attached diagrams at the antenna end of the cable to overcome cable loss.
For antenna installations involving runs in excess of 375 feet, the use of a power inserter is recommended to overcome the DC drop through the cable, thereby providing enough DC voltage to power the amplifiers and low noise amplifier. A 3 foot length of small diameter coaxial cable (F36SMB) is supplied with an SMB-plug to mate with the radio.
