The antenna that comes with the KiwiSDR works, but can be marginal, especially when used indoors. I bought  [https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LXRQY9A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?tag=blackcatsyste-20&linkCode=w00 this antenna ] from Amazon, and it seems to work better. I also found that it helps tremendously to have the antenna sitting on a metal ground plane. A simple small aluminum baking sheet works great. I carefully adjusted the location of the antenna on the sheet, as well as the location of both (they are sitting on a shelf) for maximum signal(s) from the GPS satellites.

The antenna that comes with the KiwiSDR works, but can be marginal, especially when used indoors. I bought this antenna from Amazon, and it seems to work better. I also found that it helps tremendously to have the antenna sitting on a metal ground plane. A simple small aluminum baking sheet works great.
