Re: QLG2, LOVE It!

Serendipity strikes!

I was playing with my new QLG2 and needed to move the antenna. I moved it from atop an old Negretti & Zambra thermograph to on top some nearby books. Typical of the British Meteorological Service, this temperature recorder is built like a tank. The base is cast iron and the remainder of the case is all-copper!

Much to my surprise, when I made this change the signal to noise dropped by 3 to 4 dB - CONSISTENTLY!

It looks like the GPS antenna really appreciates a ground plane - who knew!
