Dear fellow time-nuts!

I'm currently investigating my options regarding
GPS antennae (of course for time related purposes)
and I'm really confused by the variety they come
in ... (my apologies in advance for the long post).
Many thanks in advance and my apologies again for
the rather lengthy post. Please feel free to point
me to previous discussion regarding this topic.

All the best,



Based on practical experiences here the antenna [1] on the balcony (outside) 
would be more than adequate for a modern receiver.  Receivers from 10-15 
years back are less sensitive and may require an antenna more like [2] (but 
that has BNC connector).

I would try the cheaper antenna first, and it's no great loss if you have to 
abandon it later.

I don't believe that you mentioned what receiver this was for.
