Maximum permissible exposure calculations
Iridium GO! meets international standards for exposure to radio
waves. Your satellite device is designed and manufactured not to
exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy. These
limits are part of guidelines and established permitted levels of
RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based
on standards that were developed by independent scientific
organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of
scientific studies.
Unlike a mobile phone, Iridium GO! is designed to be used 20
centimeters (7.8 inches) or more away from persons. The RF
exposure determination for this type of device is based on the
calculation of the extent to which RF radiation from the device
does not exceed the maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limit
for use by the general public in an uncontrolled environment.
At a separation distance of 20 cm, the highest percentage of the
MPE for Iridium GO! is 21.7% when using the built-in antennas.
If using an external antenna for Iridium transmitter, the highest
percentage of the MPE for Iridium GO! is 27.1% assuming a
maximum antenna gain of 3.0 dBi; users should maintain a 20
cm separation from both Iridium GO! and an external antenna.
Accordingly, Iridium GO! complies with the FCC’s guidelines for
limiting RF exposure when used as directed.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)
concluded in May 2011 that there is limited evidence to suggest
a possible link between RF signals and two specific types of
cancer. The IARC’s conclusion is based on its review of existing
studies and information.

Iridium GO! User Manual
Calcul de l’exposition maximale permise
L’appareil Iridium GO! répond aux normes internationales
d’exposition aux ondes radio. Votre appareil satellitaire est
conçu et fabriqué pour ne pas dépasser les limites d’exposition
à l’énergie radioélectrique (HF). Ces limites font partie des
lignes directrices et des limites autorisées pour l’énergie HF
pour le grand public. Les directives sont basées sur les normes
élaborées par des organismes scientifiques indépendants par
une évaluation approfondie et régulière d’études scientifiques.
Contrairement à un téléphone mobile, l’appareil Iridium GO!
doit être utilisé à une distance de 20 centimètres (7,8 pouces)
ou plus de toute autre personne. Le calcul du rayonnement
pour ce type d’appareil repose sur le calcul du degré auquel le
rayonnement de l’appareil ne dépasse pas la limite d’exposition
maximale permise (EMP) pour une utilisation par le grand
public dans un environnement non contrôlé. À une distance
de sécurité de 20 cm, le pourcentage le plus élevé d’EMP pour
l’appareil Iridium GO! est de 21,7 % lors d’une utilisation avec les
antennes intégrées. Avec une antenne externe, le pourcentage
le plus élevé d’EMP pour l’appareil Iridium GO! est de 27,1 % en
supposant un gain d’antenne maximal de 3,0 dB ; les utilisateurs
devraient conserver une distance de sécurité de 20 cm autant
par rapport à l’appareil Iridium GO! que par rapport à une
antenne externe. Par conséquent, l’appareil Iridium GO! respecte
les lignes directrices de la FCC quant à la limite du rayonnement
lorsqu’il est utilisé comme indiqué.
Le Centre International de Recherche sur le Cancer (CIRC) a
conclu en mai 2011 qu’il existe des preuves limitées de liens
The United States agencies responsible for setting RF exposure
limits, the FCC and FDA, however, indicated that there is not
sufficient scientific evidence to support a link between wireless
device use and cancer and that use of wireless devices such as
mobile phones according to current regulations is safe.

possibles entre les signaux RF et deux types précis de cancers.
La conclusion du CIRC repose sur son examen des études et des
renseignements existants.
Le FCC et la FDA, organismes des États-Unis chargés de fixer les
limites d’exposition au rayonnement, indiquent toutefois qu’il
n’y a pas suffisamment de preuves scientifiques pour établir un
lien entre l’utilisation d’appareils mobiles et le cancer, et que
l’utilisation d’appareils mobiles tels que des téléphones mobiles
en respectant la réglementation en vigueur est sécuritaire.

Use only an approved antenna. Unauthorized antennas,
modifications, or attachments could damage the device and
may violate government regulations. When using remote mount
antenna, ensure that antenna is mounted at least 20 cm away
from the user. Also when using a remote mount antenna in
order to reduce potential radio interference to other users, the
antenna type and its gain should be 3dBi or less.
N’utilisez que l’antenne livrée avec l’appareil ou une antenne

l’antenne à au moins 20 cm de l’utilisateur. De plus, si vous
utilisez une antenne auxiliaire portable, afin de réduire le
risque d’interférences radio avec les autres utilisateurs, le
type d’antenne et son gain devraient être choisis afin que la
puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne soit pas

32 Iridium GO! User Manual
5: Using Iridium GO! and your smartphone
Full Visibility
8.2˚

Iridium GO! requires connection to the Iridium Satellite Network. The swivel antenna should be
vertical to the ground and have a clear unobstructed view of the sky. For optimal performance,
the antenna must be able to “see” the entire sky from approximately 8 degrees above the horizon.
Nearby tall buildings or similar structures, heavily leafed trees and mountains can all degrade
performance as they block the signal between the antenna and the satellites. Having a completely
open view of the sky plays a very important role in maximizing performance, as the Iridium satellites
move across the sky from North horizon to South horizon during a connected call.
Iridium GO! User Manual 33
Tips on efficient operation
For Iridium GO! to operate most efficiently:
1.Keep the battery charged to ensure that the device is ready for use when needed.
2.Ensure antenna is pointed directly up while in use.
3.Make sure the antenna has a clear unobstructed view of the sky.
4.Do not touch the antenna unnecessarily when the Iridium GO! device is in use, as contact with the
antenna may impact call quality and battery consumption.
Iridium GO! is not designed to be worn on your body. Refer to Chapter 2 “Important safety and regulatory information” on
proper use.
Using the external antenna
5
The Iridium GO! device has the ability to connect to an external antenna with the use of adapter
cable (both the external antenna and adapter cable are sold separately). The use of an external
antenna would allow you to use the device while inside an enclosed area in close proximity to an
open view of the sky. The connector on the device is located behind the cover found directly below
the device antenna. When an external antenna is connected, you must still raise the device antenna;
this action turns the unit on and allows for transmission with the Iridium network, while lowering the
device antenna will prevent the device from transmitting. Use of an external antenna will provide
connectivity for the Iridium network only and will not provide GPS reception. In order to obtain GPS
reception, the Iridium GO! device must be in view of an open sky.

The following items may impact the Iridium GO! device battery consumption:
•Limited view of the sky – being located in an area with limited view of the sky requires the
device to search for the Iridium network signal longer and can result in higher than usual battery
consumption. To conserve battery power, it’s best to operate the Iridium GO! device with a clear
and unobstructed view of the sky when possible.
•New batteries require two to three charge/discharge cycles prior to attaining normal performance.
If your battery is new, we recommend that you perform these charge/discharge cycles.
•As a battery ages, it will experience a decline in performance. If your battery is several years old, it
is recommended that you replace it with a new battery.
•Extreme hot or cold temperatures can impact a battery’s performance. If you are operating the
Iridium GO! device in these situations, you may see the battery charge levels impacted.
The Iridium GO! device becomes warm during use.
You may notice this during long calls or during charging. The heat is produced by the electronic
components within your Iridium GO! and is quite normal.
