Alternative to Iridium Go Fixed Installation kit?

I just bought a go with the Fixed installation kit.

The LLA400 cable with the connections on the ends are too large to fish through where I would like to route the cable. Is there an alternative smaller diameter cable?
What type of antenna is required for the the Go?

Have you tried talking to PredictWind? They might be able to suggest a solution.

If you or a friend is good at rebuilding RF cables you can simply cut-off the connector, feed the wire through your openings, then put on a new connector.

That's what I did.

You could also change their cable out for LMR 400 - UF (ultra flex) which is easier to work with and has a better bend radius compared to the standard LMR400.
