Hi Folks, me again ;)

So I ended up ordering an MCX-terminated antenna from JA-GPS, which  
arrived this afternoon.. Shoved it on the shed roof, and ran the cable  
inside, plugged it into the GPS15H, and powered it up..  Came back 30  
mins later and it still doesn't have a lock..

I'm wondering if there's something I need to do with the GPS15 to  
initialise it after being powered off for 12 months or so?  I've sent  
it a $PGRMI sentence to tell it where/when it is, which it was happy  
with, and seems to be keeping time ok on it's internal clock.. - but  
no satellite lock?

Any thoughts?? :)
