Default Globalstar Satfi2- don't buy it just yet

I have been "on the list" for the new Globalstar Satfi2 for around a year.

I finally got mine last week and was stoked, until I asked them where I could buy an antenna, as it either needs to have line of sight with the sky or an external antenna mounted on top of your hardtop, tower, etc..

As of now, they don't sell an antenna that works with this unit and won't be releasing one until the end of the year.

If anyone knows of an antenna that will work with this unit, let me know, as Globalstar did not know of one and I am guessing one does not exist.

I guess the marine market must not be super important to them.

Why could you not mount it in the TTop? Says water and shock resistance.
