NovAtel has been informed by the FAA that only a FAA TSO-C144 certification part number shall appear on FAA certified antennas. As a result, NovAtel must EOL all FAA certified antennas that have an Antcom and NovAtel part number appearing, and replace them with antennas that display only the FAA TSO-C144 part number. The replacement antennas will be identical to the original antenna product.
This EOL announcement, effective immediately, applies to the following antennas:
Orders for these antennas will be automatically transitioned to the new part number. For special cases where this automatic transition may cause concern, please contact your NovAtel Sales Manager in your region. A complete list of NovAtel representatives can be found on our website at:
