In order to receive GPS signals in the L1 and L2 frequency bands, Antcom created the FRPA Footprint GPS L1/L2 Antenna. This antenna has an external magnet mount on the baseplate and adheres to the fixed reception pattern antenna (FRPA) form factor. An SMA connector is located on the side of the baseplate for simple access after the antenna has been attached. The baseplate's vertical sidewalls are painted in the same hue as the radome. There are passive and active (amplified) variants of the product family available.
Sharp band edges and linearity within the GPS bands are provided by two-stage ceramic and surface acoustic wave (SAW) filtering in the active versions. To assure operation in areas with high levels of ac ambient interference, the upper and lower frequency bands are independently boosted and filtered. The applications where the antenna is placed close to the GPS receiver are best suited for the passive arrangements. Antcom can adapt this product line to fit your unique needs.
