More details on the Terk TRK-SR20S
Overview: Terk Sirius antennas send the strongest possible signal to your Sirius Satellite Radio tuner for error-free reception. You must have an Sirius tuner, a Sirius-compatible antenna, and a subscription to Sirius Radio to receive the satellite radio signal.
Design: Terk's TRK-SR20S antenna has a low-profile design, and mounts to your vehicle's roof with special adhesive acrylic foam pads. Since the TRK-SR20S has dual-mode functionality, it allows you to receive terrestrial repeater and satellite signals at the same time. The antenna is tested to withstand extreme environmental conditions. The attached micro cables are designed to wrap around the rear window and to fold under the rubber molding for an invisible installation.
Paintable: The antenna may be painted to match your vehicle's color.
Installation Tips: When selecting a location for the antenna, make sure the site meets the following conditions:
- The selected site must have a conductive surface area (e.g. a metal or aluminum roof or trunk lid) of at least 2-1/4 square feet and be 5 inches from the rear window molding. For convertibles with composite trunk lids, an aluminum foil "ground plane" of at least 2-1/4 square feet can be centered under the antenna location between the trunk lid and the interior lid liner.
- Line of sight to satellites must not be blocked by any metal obstructions (e.g., crossbars from a roof rack).
- The highest possible point on the vehicle's roof that satisfies the above conditions and is as flat as possible should be used for antenna placement.
Replacement Adhesive Mounting Kit: If you need to re-mount the antenna, an "RK2" replacement adhesive mounting kit may be purchased directly from Terk. Terk may be contacted at 1-800-942-8375.
Manual Correction: The manual incorrectly indicates that one antenna cable has a blue connector and the other antenna cable has a white connector. Actually, one connector is green, and the other is yellow. The cable with the green connector carries terrestrial signals, and the cable with the yellow connector carries satellite signals.
