1) They have the antenna end LNA that a modern receiver expects to see at the antenna.
2) They have at least some filtering to protect against out of band signals
3) They are shaped so birds are less likely to nest on them
4) They are small enough that they don’t stand out much
5) They are reasonably weatherproof as well as standing up to temperature and UV
6) Their directional pattern is somewhat better than a turnstile for GPS
