The Shakespeare Galaxy
Style SRA-40 Satellite Radio
Antenna is a versatile antenna for receiving Sirius Satellite Radio.
The antenna’s versatile mounting permits attaching the antenna
directly to a flat surface, to the included Pedestal Mount kit, to an
optional extension mast (1”-14 thread), or to a Shakespeare Style 4720
Rail Mount (sold separately). When the pedestal base is used, the kit allows
routing the antenna’s coax cabling with or without passing the cable through
the mounting surface. In all cases, a receiver capable of receiving Sirius
Satellite Radio is required (not supplied).

using the one of the cable kits listed on page 6 (each sold separately). Note: These cables
replace the 25’ cable supplied with the antenna, and must be used as supplied. They cannot
be lengthened, shortened, or connected together as extensions.

Satellite Shooter Template
Trace the triangle below on a sheet of paper, then cut out the triangle and use as a
template on thick paper or poster-board.
1. Tape this edge to paper tube or straight edge.
2. Sight through tube or top of straight edge for clear
view of sky.
This corner should be next to the mounting
hole when scanning.
This edge must be kept horizontal at the mounting location
EXTENSION MAST OR RAIL MOUNTING
If you are attaching the antenna to a marine extension mast or rail mount:
Step 1: Route the 6” cable from the antenna through the thread adapter.
Step 2: Screw the antenna onto the thread adapter.
Step 3: Route the 25’ (or optional) cable through the extension mast or rail mount.
Step 4: Attach the 25’ cable’s connector to the connector on the 6” antenna cable.
Step 5: Screw the antenna assembly onto the extension mast or rail mount. IMPORTANT:
Rotate the cable counterclockwise while turning the antenna assembly clockwise. Make sure
the cable turns freely and does not bind.
SPECIAL NOTE: The hole in ratchet-type antenna mounts will not accommodate the
SRA-40’s connector. You must use the included flange mount, a rail mount, or an extension mast,
which will allow the cable and its connector to pass through. Do not cut the cable and do not
remove the connector.
Skip to “Completing the installation,” below.
Completing the installation
Step 1: Route the cable to your satellite radio receiver.

Splitter may be required. Newer models may differ, so consult your dealer or Shakespeare for up-
Step 2: Attach the SMB connector to your satellite radio receiver. See the receiver’s manual
for precautions and instructions. Done!
