    I have Trimble embedded 3.3V GPS unpackaged antenna
    and a home-made ground plane (60x60x1.3mm sheet metal);

    Can I put the GPS antenna directly on the ground plane
    (than the ground plane would contact with antenna's GND)
    or place some dielectric between?
    (what kind and size of dielectric?)

    I have oem GPS receiver Lassen SQ;
    Can I put that GPS antenna directly on it?

    ps.
    I read "Basic Guidelines for the use of the
    Ultra-Compact Embedded Antenna",
    but I didn't find there any info :(.
