There was a long thread on the list several months ago about choke-ring
antennas and how to build one out of cake pans.  

However, the issue you describe sounds more like lack of gain/signal rather
than multipath interference.  I have used several types of antennas for my
TBolt including ones like item 390147799311 and item 290466318345 on e..y
that have worked very well in NW Florida.  Just search for GPS Timing

Hi group,

Warren found out that the signals  TB gets out of my small ceramic typ 
antenna are too weak. They are too noisy.

So I had a look for a good antenna and found some commercial typs called
choke-ring antenna. As they are really expensive is there any DIY solution

I have a lathe so its possibly to machine rings if I get the dimensions...

Thanks a lot making me a "nut" ;)
