The uBlox is alive


Good news: removed the SMA cable and soldered the uBlox directly to the passive antenna section. No tank circuit or anything. Got 4 satellites indoors, 3D position and velocity at 4Hz.

Bad news: Like the EB-85, there's no capacitor to retain settings between power cycles and it can't acquire indoors. U have to go outside for it to acquire, then go inside.

Finally, the answer is yes. The PIC oscillator was kicked out in the crash and forgotten in the golf course for 3 days, getting run over by lawn mowers, sprayed on by sprinklers, and stepped on by middle managers. We'll see how accurate it still is in the air.

There's nothing on the other side.
