As we recommended to me when I asked a similar question, the Narda
4372A-4 was a brand I had not heard of before and didn't come up in
'gps splitter' searches. I got one on ebay for $24 plus a bit extra
for DC blocks on the n-1 other ports and it seems to work well and it
was handy to have an SMA-based solution as most of the gps receivers
and the antenna pucks seem to use SMA. This meant I only needed 1 N to
SMA converter cable for an external antenna (which has yet to be
externalized...). I found it smaller in real life than it looks in a
lot of the pictures, about the size of a modern smartphone but about
double or more the thickness (the connectors are on the ends).
