Navilock NL-65AT MMCX

The Navilock NL-65AT MMCX is an active GPS antenna from the company Navilock. According to the manufacturer it has following specifications:

* dimensions 40,5 x 38,0 x 12,3 mm
* 2m connection cable with MMCX plug
* power consumption:
  * with 3V 12mA
  * with 5V 18mA

The antenna is tested shortly, the input signal increased by a factor of 4 in a car.

The Haicom GPS-AHI-101 have these specifications:

* dimensions: 50 x 50 x 17 mm
* 5 m connection cable with MMCX plug

A brief test (hanging the antenna out of the window in my apartment) show that it works quite well. TTFF in 216 seconds, 6 satellites in view. Note: I used my FreeRunner to do the test, I haven't tested the antenna with my Neo 1973 yet.
