Not at all, it all makes sense. Thanks for the ideas and the links. I already have some U.FL to SMA cables of various lengths to play around with. I like @Vaklin's idea of top mounting an external antenna, makes more sense. I never liked the location of the GPS antenna in either the ST16s or the ST16 for the H480. It is easily obscured by the operators body. Something I always wanted to relocate, but never got around to it. Looks like now's the time!My apologies if I have gotten too detailed about a simple question. I blame my brain.
As far as AliExpress goes, I don't like to order from China, you might save a couple of bucks, but it takes way to long to get the item.
