EMTEC Ceramic GPS Antennas

Matthew Currie
Jeremy,


  I promised I would start using the e-mail list a bit more for the benefit of the group so here goes.

  I called Transplant GPS today and spoke to Cathy.  I asked for Steve and she said "can I ask why you are calling first?".  I said I was told to talk to Steve and she said "why?" so I had to explain I am looking for antennas and she quoted me $5.05 USD each now lol.  She explained that they have the sample kits and the ANA1580T18D40 in stock ONLY so any off frequency part has a 30 day lead time, plus you pay the shipping from "China", or wherever their assembly plant is.

  This is what she quoted me for quantities.

   0 5.05 USD
 100 2.55 USD
1000 1.75 USD


Again, this is what she has "officially" quoted me, even with "projections" of 1000 units.  If you have a trick, or if you can get Steve to call me :)


Regards,
Matthew Currie

Matt,

$5 is not a bad price for the antennas.  Frequencies other than 1580
MHz may also require a substantial minimum order, I'm not sure.
There is a similar 18mm x 4mm 1580 MHz antenna made by Sangshin
available for $5 from rfmw.com in California.  I have both types of
antennas on hand and will post info on the wiki once they're properly
evaluated.
