GPS-701
USERS’ GUIDE
The GPS-701 is an active antenna
designed to operate at the GPS L1
frequency, 1575.42 MHz. This guide
provides the basic information you
need to install and begin using your
new antenna.
ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED
INSTALLING THE ANTENNA
After a site has been selected, install the antenna as follows.
2. Align the mount thread with the metal adapter on the bottom
of the antenna and rotate the antenna clockwise until it is
securely screwed to the mount. Using a wrench, tighten the
adapter to the mount.
•
•
•
A mount, such as a range pole, tribrach, or tripod, with a
5/8" x 11 thread that extends between 3/8" and 7/8" (9
mm and 22 mm)
A 1" open-end wrench
Coaxial cable with a male TNC connector
A device with an antenna input port that both receives
the RF signal and provides 4.5 - 18.0 VDC to the
antenna (NovAtel GPS receivers provide the necessary
power through their antenna RF connectors.)

5. Attach the other end of the coaxial cable to the antenna input
port of the receiving device, which must provide power as
detailed in the SPECIFICATIONS section of this guide. All
NovAtel GPS receivers provide the necessary power
through their antenna RF connectors.

1. Verify that the thread on the mount does not extend more
than 7/8" (22 mm) to ensure the plastic inside the antenna
receptacle is not damaged when the mount is inserted. If it
extends further than 7/8" (22 mm), add two jam nuts to
shorten the exposed thread, ensuring the nuts are well-tightened.
The equipment listed below is required to set up the GPS-701:

4. Attach the male TNC connector of the coaxial cable to the
antenna’s TNC connector.

The GPS-701 is designed to withstand the elements, including
rain, snow, and dust. However, to ensure your antenna performs
optimally, keep the radome (the top surface of the antenna)
clean and brush off any ice and snow. In addition, ensure the
TNC connector remains clean and dry and replace the dust cap
when a cable is not connected.

SITE SELECTION GUIDELINES
Before installing the antenna, select a site that as closely as
possible meets the following conditions for optimal performance:
•
•
•
An unobstructed line-of-sight from horizon to horizon
and at all bearings and elevation angles
As far as possible from reflective objects, especially
those that are above the antenna and any water bodies,
which can be a strong source of multipath reflections
If obstructions and reflective surfaces are within 30 m,
ensure the site is as high as possible. Otherwise, mount
the antenna as low as possible.
The metal adapter on the bottom of the antenna is fixed in place.
Do not attempt to remove it.

3. Remove the dust cap from the antenna’s TNC connector.
