you can use The FDU-XT , because Thuraya XT can not use in the room , you can only receive the satellite signal outdoor . please see attached FDU-XT , Thuraya Docking station with outdoor antenna , which made by Huayang Technology , Brand Name : Matsutec.
It sounds like its the antenna, although it could be the docking station itself, or even the receiver. The best way to narrow it down is by testing against other equipment (if you happen to have other docking stations and or antennas) If it produces the same result you know its the radio. If you swap antennas and it works, obviously the antenna; and the same goes for the docking station. You can find replacements at tss-radio.com.
Antenna not detected could be caused by one of three things: The antenna, the docking station, or the receiver. If you have other equipment to troubleshoot, you can narrow down what is causing your issue and replace it. tss-radio.com is a good source for parts and trouble shooting ;)
Go outside with the unit in the clear, and If it says "Antenna" - it means the connector for the antenna, the docking base or the antenna itself it usually bad. See if you can borrow a buddy's antenna just to see if the "Antenna" warning goes away. It could be the antenna & its connector, could be the docking base (make sure the radio is plugged in tight) or could be the radio (but usually isn't). Good luck and let me know what you find out.
Simple. Go to http://xmfanstore.com , click on "Antennas and Extensions" under "Shop Categories" on the left most side of the site; there you will find "XMFanStore XM2go Direct Connect Antenna Adapter" .
It plugs into the SIDE antenna port of your XM unit and you plug the antenna into that.
the "reactivate" did not take in it's entirety, try calling sirus/XM again and see if they will "reboot it again, this time try having it the docking station within antenna "range", and both should "reboot", let me know if this fixes the problem, if not I have some friends there I can call, and we'll go from there, god bless and happy 4th......
The unit has an internal antenna (that is really poor) that is activated when you unplug the external antenna. This is why you get some signal when you unplug the unit.
I assume the problem is the antenna itself.
My suggesion is that you charge up the unit, take it to a place that sells XM equipment AND has a demo unit working. Be sure to take your docking station with you (it has the plug in for an external antenna). Ask the sales rep to please connect your unit to an external antenna to test your unit as you are trying to determine if your antenna is bad. If it works, you need a new antenna (cable may be cut on the inside or antenna may have water/weather damage). If it does not, then there is an electrical issue inside the unit and the unit itelf will need replacement/repair.
More than likely, it is the antenna. Sad to say, but the Sirius antennas go bad very easily. Make sure there is no undue pressure on the antenna wire itself, as that can aide to premature failure. Bad antennas are the number one reason for the unit to read 'antenna not detected.' I have seen plenty of the antennas go bad and they were not misused one bit. If you contact Sirius, they're usually pretty good at understanding the misfortune of losing your paid service. Sometimes they'll ship you out a new antenna.
