Route the coax cable from the newly installed antenna into the building following the manufacturer’s antenna safety guidelines.

Route the coax from the building’s ingress to the server’s installation site, and connect to the GPS server.


  • Locate the TCA8000 or TCA8500 Timing Server away from power lines, electric lights, and power circuits.
