Note that this antenna will only work with Meinberg receivers. The in-built down-converter allows long cable runs over generic Coax cable. No unpictured accessories are included. The connector on the underside is an N-Female. I estimate the length of the cable at about 20 meters.
The GPS antenna combines a planar antenna and a frequency converter, which translates the high-frequency phase-modulated spread spectrum signal of the GPS system to an intermediate frequency. This way a standard coaxial cable (e.g. RG58) can be used for the connection with the GPS clock and a distance of up to 300 meters (with RG58) or even 700 meters (with a low-loss cable type like RG213) between receiver and antenna is possible without additional amplifier.

GPS reception can only be reliable if the antenna has a free view of the sky, therefore it needs to be installed at a suitable location, e.g. on a rooftop. The unit is remotely powered by the connected GPS receiver (via the antenna cable) and can be used only with GPS equipment from Meinberg.
