Blergh, ignore that, it seems the OT1x is different from the OT1+ in 
that it only has a single-colour, led, so it's *supposed* to be flashing 

Oh well, at least I *know* i have a good GPS antenna now, and don't have 
to worry about where I mount the GPS!  And I guess this'll get archived 
and eventually turn up on google so anyone else seeing the same thing 
won't spend a week messing with the OT1x thinking their GPS is dead :)

Next step TX cable, and then let it sit on HF for a day or two and make 
sure it's all working! :)
