That's an old receiver. Modern receivers are much more sensitive and much
more likely to work indoors.
I suggest getting a modern chip. Some of them come packaged with an antenna.
Then you can play around with it from a PC, arduino, or Raspberry Pi to
figure out what you will have to do and how well it will work.
Here is one to consider:
Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout - 66 channel w/10 Hz updates - Version 3
If you have room on the display, you can display the offset between the time
as derived from GPS and the time from the power line. :)
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
