Default Kenwood H2A Indoor Docking Kit Extension Antennae Cable ?

Does anyone know of an extension exists ? Although the supplied cable is a reasonably generous 20', for me, it is not long enough for an ideal installation.

I am trying out a Kenwood H2A this weekend. My home location in Cary, North Carolina is somewhat challenged for reception as my listening room windows face due South and I have pretty much solid blockage to the North due to my construction.

So far, I am getting best results when placing my antennae just slightly south of 270. I am losing signal at times when both visible satellites are up to the NW of my area, due to blockage. In my area in North Carolina, I think a NW pointed antennae would probably yield best result as there is always a bird high up to the north.

Here is a Sat Orbit Map:

This is a very good question about the extension. I was wondering if maybe the extension for the Skifi may work? I would like to have a bit more cable myself, but have pretty much settled for the 20' that came with it.

If anyone knows if Kenwood has an extention or will have it or if the Skifi extention will work, please post.

Kenwood is the first manufacturer to use the new low-profile Gen2 antennas. Terk will debut the full line in mid July and I imagine extension cables will be part of the lineup.

Thanks Jeff, I'll be looking forward to them making the extention cable available pretty soon. So, this low profile antenna that comes with the H2A are made by Terk? What about the home antenna?
