Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

The Lars Thrane LT-4100 is a great product for fishing vessels that need satellite communications but do not need the fast speeds or costs of a VSAT; with speeds as fast as 22 kbps (up) / 88 kbps (down).

The LT-4100 system has voice and data capabilities with 100% global coverage provided by the Iridium® network. The LT-4100 system consists of a control unit, antenna unit, handset, and cradle. A single coaxial cable connects the control unit with the antenna unit.

The LT-4100 will be on show at the CA Clase stand 190 at Scottish Skipper Expo.
