[Thumbgps-devel] the serial alternative/radio noise

While this has already been discussed and discarded, and then sort of
brought up again,
there is a picture here of the on-board serial connector on these
classes of devices.


As noted there is no dcd pin to play with. There are plenty of other
GPIOs on the box however.

I AM curious if there is one of the gps boards we've looked at than
can 'just fit' on this header. Or, for that matter, a RTC.

Now, I actually brought this up because in looking at this I realized
anew what a huge radiator of various forms of electronic noise this
is. - 2.4ghz and 5.x ghz radios, and a variety of possible waveforms
from the cpu - and I'm curious as to what extent gps is affected by
these frequencies.
