A whisker might explain things.  Would that also show up as over-current?

This photo is from 2009:

That's from a Lucent KS-24019L112A.

A Maxrad antenna, PN: Z3001, has the same shape, tan top with similar insides.

Another one from, Pctel, GPS-TMG-HR-26N, has a slightly larger cylinder.
It has a metal base plate.

Motorla, AN25090031, shorter and wider has a patch.
NAIS, CCAH32ST04, has a patch.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
