GPS reception can only be reliable if the antenna has a free view of the sky, therefore it needs to be installed at a suitable location, e.g. on a rooftop. The unit is remotely powered by the connected GPS receiver (via the antenna cable) and can be used only with GPS equipment from Meinberg.
Mounting material (plastic pole and holders, clamps for wall or pole mounting) is shipped with all Meinberg GPS antennas for easy installation. A standard cable of 20 meters is included. Please specify your order, if you need a different cable lenght.
