Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By RonnyM
Now that there are a plethora of different chip antennas out there, how does one compare? The Sarantel helical is great, but big. It seems that the smaller the antenna, the larger the ground plane. Since my app will be belt worn, I need an antenna that will face skyward, and not be easily detuned. Anyone out there done some actual field comparisons?
