Overview: The Terk SIR-Mini
roof-mount satellite radio antenna is a low-profile, high-performance antenna
designed specifically for SIRIUS Satellite Radio reception. It mounts to the
roof with special magnets that provide years of worry-free performance. The
magnetic mount also makes it removable, if necessary.
Dual Mode Functionality: The
antenna receives signals from overhead satellites as well as terrestrial
repeaters, ensuring you continuous reception.
Cable and Connector: The
SIR-Mini antenna features a single 20.5' micro-cable--easier to route than
dual-cable antennas. This micro-cable has a curry-colored FAKRA-type SMB
connector on the end and plugs directly into single-input SIRIUS Satellite Radio
Note: For connections
to dual-input SIRIUS receivers, the Terk SIR-SP dual-input splitter
(item # 209SIRSP) is required.
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 roof or trunk lid) of at least 2
square feet and be at least 5.5 inches (the length of the antenna's "tail")
from the rear window molding.
- The antenna should always be
mounted outside and on the highest location of the vehicle (roof/cab). It
should never be mounted inside the passenger compartment.
- The antenna should be free of
mechanical (outward opening moon roof) and line-of-sight obstructions, such
as roof racks, luggage boxes, etc.
- Trunk mounting of the antenna is
an alternative for hard- or soft-top convertibles with non-metallic
System Requirements: In
addition to this SIRIUS satellite radio antenna, it is necessary to have a
SIRIUS Satellite Radio receiver and a subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio in
order to receive SIRIUS Radio programming
