 To receive Iridium signals you need an antenna which is able to receive at this frequency and ideally also uses RHCP. To receive Iridium signals you need an antenna which is able to receive at this frequency and ideally also uses RHCP.
  
-If the antenna uses liner polarization,​ you can expect a loss of about 3 dB. If the antenna is left-hand circular polarized, you can expect a loss of about 30 dB.

 Most of these have a magnetic mount. They need some kind of metal plane below them to work properly. A small metal patch of about 20 cm in diameter (round or square) is more than adequate. Most of these have a magnetic mount. They need some kind of metal plane below them to work properly.
