Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] GPS Antenna below deck?

Fiberglass is mostly transparent to radio waves, so it should have only a tiny impact on signal strength. But GPS (and any satellite) signals are already very weak, so it might be enough to cause you to "see" fewer satellites than you would with a clear view of the sky. It shouldn't cause any position error. Take care that your sensor isn't behind any metal or wood, or even some kinds of paint, which can block signals.
