[time-nuts] GPS antenna installation problem

Is your signal degradation sudden or gradual as correlated
with outside temperature?

How well sealed is your outdoor connector? Maybe moisture
or thin layer of ice at the cable-connector-antenna junction?

Monitoring antenna voltage & current could be a good clue
to the source of the problem.

Those HP hockey puck or cone antennas are used in cell
towers all over; it seems unlikely it would be the fault in the
antenna itself. Richard -- do you see any of these on cell
sites in Fairbanks?
