Antenna Mounting Templates for GSP-1720 and GIK-1700

The Antenna Mounting Templates for GSP-1720 and GIK-1700 are provided in the attached documents:

We recommend that you print the templates and then use a photocopier with the appropriate “zoom” to adjust the size of the printout so that the actual distances on the printout match the measurements that are listed.

Once this is complete, you can use the size-adjusted templates for  mounting the antenna.

.

GIK-1700 can use the following antennas:

  1. Active Tx Antenna:  GAT-17MP (magnetic mount patch), GAT-17HX (magnetic mount helix), GAT-17MR (marine mount helix)
  2. Passive Tx Antenna:  It is not possible to use a passive antenna with the GIK-1700
  3. Other Antennas not listed above:
    1. It is not possible to use antennas other than the active Tx antennas listed above.
    2. The GIK-1700 requires an Active Antenna.  The Active Antenna has a power amplifier (PA) for the Transmit element of the antenna.  The PA compensates for the signal loss that occurs due to the GIK-1700 cradle and cables.
    3. The Globalstar active antennas are matched to the GIK-1700 for the correct performance and are the only active antennas that have been approved by the FCC, IC, CE and other regulatory agencies

 

GSP-1720 can use the following antennas:

  1. Active Antenna:  GAT-17MP (magnetic mount patch), GAT-17HX (magnetic mount helix), GAT-17MR (marine mount helix)
  2. Passive Antenna:  GAT-17PP (passive patch), GAT-17PH (passive helix), GAT-17PM (passive marine mount helix), GAT-17QP (Qualcomm Antcom patch)
  3. Other Active Tx antennas not listed above:
    1. It is not possible to use antennas other than the antennas listed above.
    2. The GIK-1700 requires an Active Antenna.  The Active Antenna has a power amplifier (PA) for the Transmit element of the antenna.  The PA compensates for the signal loss that occurs due to the GIK-1700 cradle and cables.
    3. The Globalstar active antennas are matched to the GIK-1700 for the correct performance and are the only active antennas that have been approved by the FCC, IC, CE and other regulatory agencies
  4. Other Passive Tx antennas not listed above:
      1. Globalstar does not recommend any antennas other than the antennas listed above.
      2. The Globalstar passive antennas are matched to the GSP-1720 for the correct performance and are the only passive antennas that have been approved by the FCC, IC, CE and other regulatory agencies
