FWIW, here is a quick test I ran on my TICC, assuming the attachment makes

"TICC base" was a Trimble Thunderbolt reference and PPS.

The reference for the other traces was an FE-5680A with an LTE Lite on ChA
and Trimble PPS on ChB.

The GPS antennas are indoors and entirely sub-optimal.  The LTE Lite is in
a Hammond enclosure and using the antenna supplied with the eval kit
sitting on top of a metal file cabinet.

The result seems to be about as expected for the LTE Lite.  The Trimble
typically doesn't track many satellites so I'm not expecting great results.
