I’ve sent email to them, but I don’t expect an answer before Monday.  I was hoping somebody on the time-nuts mailing list had encountered this before and had a solution.

If you’re referring to this:

>> 	• Antenna Connection: 1575.42MHz (L1 Band) at a level between -135dBm and -159dBm into 50 Ohm impedance.
>>           Maximum input return loss is -9dB.

>> 	• Re-acquisition (<10s obstruction) typically 1 second

I’ve let it sit for over an hour and it still doesn’t answer ICMP-ping or NTP or HTTP.
