  • This paper discusses an investigation of the loss of received signal power associated with operation of L1 GPS antennas in close proximity to the human body. Through the use of a human proxy or phantom body with similar electrical characteristics to that of a human body, signal strength data is collected in 24-hour static tests and repeated for multiple distances between the antenna and the phantom. Through these tests it has been determined that in addition to detuning effects, there is a… CONTINUE READING
