Base station antennas are at the heart of your GPS tracking system.  It is vital they work well, and a great antenna will improve your the radio coverage of your system.

 

An important rule for radio system design is: put the best antenna you can afford at your base station and at your repeater sites.  A good base station antenna is:

 

  • Rugged

  • Reliable

  • Weather resistant

  • Provides improved gain

  • UV protected

GPS

 

Antenna RT-AN-GP1

 

26 DBI GPS ANTENNA ,Active, 1575 MHZ, Black, Magnetic mount with SMA-MCONN 

 

Connector Type: SMA Male

FrequencyRange: 1575.4 MHz

Gain: 28 dB ±2 dB

Polarization: Right Hand Circular

Noise Figure: 2.0 dB Max

Voltage: 3 Vdc

Current: 20 mA Max

Housing: Black

Dimensions: 2" (Dia) x .6"(H)

Cable Type: 6' RG174

Mounting: Magnet Mount

 

 

 

Th RT-AN-GP1 antenna can be used with the M7-GX GPS series transponders. It is a "magnet mount" antenna, used for temporary installations and quick demonstrations systems.

 

The RT-AN-GP1 GPS antenna has a built in 3V low-noise amplifier (LNA).  The LNA in this antenna will boost the GPS satellite signal, allowing the antenna to be connected with long sections of coax cable.  When used with the M7 transponder in a AVL tracking system, GPS reception is improved in dense areas, even in urban canyons and sometimes indoors.

 

The M7 GPS transponder powers the RT-AN-GP1 through the coax cable.  The center conductor of the coax cable passes power from the M7 to the GPS antenna, as well as passing GPS satellite signals from the antenna to the M7.
