    Commlinx were the Aust agents for Laipac and offered a fairly decent magnetic
    active (5V) patch antenna with MCX/OCX or SMA connector at a reasonable price.
    However since that site was taken over by Laipac, the only options appear to be
    to pay double to some other sources or order direct from Laipac and pay a
    ridiculous ($US35) shipping/handling charge.

    Anyone know of another source for these for <$A50?

    Quite possibly. What connector is on the end? My GPR Rx has MCX. What I would
    have been sourcing from Commlinx was an ant with an SMA, and an adaptor lead SMA
    bulkhead to MCX as I want the Rx boxed up and with a bulkhead SMA for the ant
    system.

    Being Trimble, it'll probably be like the Garmin bits. Think of a number,
    double it, add ....

    But thanks.

    Sorry, should have said. It's an SMA, I used one of their SMA/BNC
    adapters with it.
