Hello all

I have installed the gps oncore 8 channel receiver in my attic next to a roof
vent and used 70 feet (21 m) 4 wire shielded cable to connect to the computer.
The antenna is on the roof and attached with rtv. Everything works very well. I
used winoncore12 to check out the setup and then switched to winplotgps which I
will use with Larry's A/D. I can receive 10 satellites but the receiver only
uses 8 which is more than enough. At the original location the antenna was some
what shielded because the antenna was at the eaves of the house but on the
north side of the house and only two to three satellites could be effectively
I found a cast off UPS-200, APC I believe, and installed a new battery so I
have a good power source. The ups checked out ok.

Now to get the Lehman constructed.
