Charles, I have what I have.  No, I do not have a 360 degree view of the sky, and that's not likely to change for some time.  I have the southerly 180 degrees from about 20 degrees elevation and up.  I bought this KS as an example reference for my homegrown.  It may be that it's just not up to the job under my conditions.  That's why i got the PRS45A.

Don't asume that an antenna feed that makes one GPS rx happy will 
make another rx happy.  So, I repeat, Does your GPS antenna have a 
good, clear, outdoor view of the whole sky?  If not, fix that FIRST 
before you do any more test runs.  Otherwise, you're just chasing your tail.
