Could you guys post some pictures of your antenna setups? I have trouble getting a GPS fix with the RFD modems on (I uses 868 european models).

Here's my setup:
- Reach DGPS base station, RFD868 on the serial port, powered through the reach
- Reach DGPS rover, Navio with RFD 868 on the USB port via FTDI, and reach on the serial 6 wire port.

I think I'm doing something wrong with antennas because:
- When I let the Reach DGPS modules communicate with wifi, everything is fine and I get a real fast fix.
- When they keep communicating via wifi, but I turn on the radio modem of the base station, I get no fix.
- When I turn off wifi and inject DGPS in Mavlink, I get nice dgps data, but still no fix.

It's as if the radio modem is destroying the satellite data.

What is a good antenna setup?

I put my gps antennas on an aluminum foil baseplate of 11x11 cm, and any radio modem antennas are below that plane.

Same problem, 

Switch on the RFD868x and no GPS, RFD868 seems a jammer of GPS

Has you found a solution?

I think it's a brown out. Still experimenting.
