[time-nuts] GPS ceramic patch in what plastic housing?

I did a number of professional GPS installations in the 90's, mainly for
Telco sync and NTP work. Where there were more than one antenna required, we
used to install at different ends of the building, to minimise risk from
lightning strikes etc.

  You're welcome Peter.  I'm glad I was able to finally provide something
useful.  :)

Hopefully others found it an interesting read as well.  I have two
Thunderbolts and am trying to figure out how far apart I should mount the
antennas.  Further apart reduces the changes of multpath to both antennas
from the same source... but then again, placing them very close together
would remove that as another in the millions of variables.

Any thoughts on mounting a pair of GPS antennas to maximize "timing" 
accuracy?
