There have been a couple of questions on and off list. as to the specific  
listing. I did forget to mention one thing. The unit comes with a built in  
antenna.  For time application not exactly what we want Not easy to take  
off since it is a block of ceramic with a pin through the center with little  
tolerance. Un soldering will not do doe to the heat sink created by the  
ceramic. Best way is to put the ceramic in a vice on its side excerpt a lot of  
pressure and it will brake or use a center punch or small hammer while it 
is  under pressure. It will shatter. next remove the pieces with a knife 
since there  is some glue. Now you are left with a pin. If you want to use the 
hole find a  way to hold the board, heat the pin with a soldering iron and 
wiggle it  out.  Did it with two units no problem.

While I agree  the noise has risen quite a bit, as a mostly lurker here, 
I've learned quite a  bit just watching the conversations.  Indeed when Dr. 
Bruce posts I'm  invariably driven into days of additional study to ponder his 
responses  :-)

Maybe someone could throw up a web page with the Ublox 7 findings  if you 
don't want to discuss on this list?  I have a selfish self  interest as I too 
have a couple of 7's on the way to the US from  China!

the  elite time-nuts, when you keep your discoveries secret, only 
accessible to a  group of hand-picked individuals? of course, this is a free world, 
and you,  like everybody, is free to share or not to share your knowledge. 
however, this  is my place to learn, and you don't do me a favour by saying 
goodbye to the  group. why not share your knowledge here, ignore the silly 
questions of the  not so bright, but give them the opportunity to follow your 
discussions with  the ones that are on a par with you? that i'd appreciate 
very much!
