About the Terk XM-EXT50
Installing a single-input XM Satellite Radio radio tuner in a home, extra-large vehicle (bus, truck, or RV), boat or any location where the cable that came with your XM antenna isn't long enough for the job? Terk offers the problem-solving XM-EXT50 50-foot extension cable for indoor and outdoor applications. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: The XM antenna is not included with this extension cable. This extension cable is only compatible with a single-input XM tuner; you'll need an adapter to connect this extension cable to an older dual-input XM tuner.
More details on the Terk XM-EXT50
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 connected back-to-back.
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.
