Thuraya docking stations sold in the USA are supplied with a standard 'south' antenna. 'North' antennas will not work in Australia. The 'south' antenna works in Northern Australia with the antenna directed towards the Thuraya-3 satellite, although the signal level is going to be low (one bar). We have developed a universal Thuraya Hemi Omni antenna
, which is designed to work throughout Thuraya coverage, including Australia.
