Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: embedded antenna: 802.11 a/b/g and GPS

I can understand the requirement for a dual band antenna (2.4GHz and 5.8GHz) which is available widely, but you will probably find it verry difficult to find an antenna that can also operate in the 1.8GHz.
If I were you, I would just go for the dual band knowing that I'm sacrificing antenna gain (attenuation,loss) with the GPS signal and accommodate for that with a good GPS-LNA.
best of luck.
