Overview: The XM-EXT50 is a 50' extension cable with an in-line
amplifier for use with XM antennas; the kit is not compatible with Sirius satellite
radio antennas. It can be used for XM mobile or home receivers.
Cable and Connector: The XM-EXT50 antenna extension cable is a
single 50' coaxial cable with single SMB connectors (without the plastic FAKRA-type
plastic housing) on each end; the input (antenna end, with the amplifier) is a male
SMB and the output (tuner end) is a female SMB. The extension cable is equipped an
in-line signal amplifier (10dB gain) on one end with a weather-resistant rubber
boot. The other end plugs directly into single-input XM Satellite Radio receivers.
Note: For connections to dual-input XM receivers, the Terk XM-SP
dual-input splitter (item number 209XMSP), or the American International XM-1DAS
(item number 003XM1DAS) is required.
Extension Limits: No more than 2 extension kits should be
Cable Care: The full length of the extension cable should be
used--it should not be cut, spliced or otherwise shortened. The cable should not
be kinked. You should avoid bending the cable in a radius of less than an inch.
The cable can be used outdoors, but it should not be exposed to severe environmental
conditions. The in-line signal amplifier should be mounted upright, oriented so the
label is readable right side up.
