I´m relative new using GNSS data and I would like to understand a little more about the instruments that I´m planning to use in my future research.
I was looking information on the UNAVCO website about Geophysical instruments and they mentioned "GNSS receivers" and "GNSS antennas" as different instruments, and actually they have tables that compare some brands and models of each equipment. Also, I was looking online but I cannot find a clear definition and functions of each one.
Before today I thought that the receiver was inside the antenna, but I´m not sure now.
What are the differences in function between a GNSS Receiver and a GNSS Antenna?
