Hi Folks

Finally got the builder here who is going to put my GPS antennae up on 
the roof.

I don't have the hardware set up to connect my Trimble Ace II modules to 
anything but want to test the cables that I have made up here in my office.

Both the Trimble and Motorola modules use active antennae with 5V power 
- what I don't know is whether they are the same polarity.  The Motorola 
has 5V on the core of the coax - does anyone know if the Trimble ones do 
the same?  If so, I'll just chuck the Trimble antenna onto the Oncore 
module for testing.
