On top of being able to record and play back GPS signals, the WBT uses its onboard GPS receiver to add location metadata to all recordings so you can track which signals you received at which location.

For clarity, I wanted to add to this that GPS can be handled in multiple ways by the WBT system.  There is a GPS input antenna (active) which will allow a built in GPS receiver to decode the NMEA data as well as provide timing (1 PPS based) and improved Frequency Accuracy.  This decoder will tag the recorded QVRT files with GPS position data as well, plus there are some apps like GPS Display. which will allow you to see the GPS Data.

Additional, either  of the tuners can be used to record the RF of a GPS signals.  This is very useful for recording the GPS RF and using it on playback with other data recorded on the 2nd tuner to provide time and frequency stability when decoding the data.  A Tech Note Recording/Playback of GPS Signals is available to discuss the details of doing this.  GPS is a very weak signal, so the operator must take care when setting up  the device on RF Recording to make sure they are in fact getting the signal they need.  Please contact us with any additional questions, and one of our team can help make sure your GPS recording and playback experience goes off without a hitch.
