TW4421 Wideband Dual-Feed GPS/GLONASS Antenna
This low-cost dual-feed GPS & GLONASS magnetic mount antenna by Tallysman Wireless covers the GPS L1, GLONASS G1 and SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS & MSAS) frequency band (1574 to 1606 MHz). The TW4421 features a novel 25mm dual feed wideband patch element that provides excellent multipath rejection and a more linear carrier phase response by virtue of the axial ratio that is greatly improved across the full frequency bandwidth. It is especially suited to high accuracy applications; it also offers high out-of-band signal rejection.
The two feeds from the patch element are summed in a 90 degree hybrid then input to a first-stage Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA), followed by a mid-section SAW and a second low-noise gain stage.
The TW4421 is one of the smallest dual-feed, high-performance antennas available. It comes with a wide range of connector options and cable length and is housed in a compact IP67 magnetic mount enclosure.
If you want a pre-filter option, please see the TW4422. It has a pre-filter which increases the antennas immunity to high amplitude interfering signals, such as LTE and other cellular signals

LNA Pre-filter Available
If you need enhanced protection against high level sub-harmonic signals like LTE and near frequency signals such as WiFi, the alternative provides these additional TW4422 benefits with an LNA pre-filter.
To minimize performance impact from signal jamming threats, the pre-filtered version of this antenna is compatible with Tallysman’s Anti-Jamming add-on, which modifies the radiation pattern of the GNSS antenna to eliminate signals arriving from -10° to +15° from horizon, while slightly increasing the gain of the antenna at zenith.
