Yeah, I've got a set of Sarantel Geohelix SMP samples on hand, but I 
didn't want to waste them on this project.

Does anyone know if a 1/4 wave whip will work?  Eventually I'll probably 
build a board with a Trimble Copernicus and patch antenna or something, 
but for now the GPS 15 is what I've got.
