simpleRTK3B Pro: what happens if antenna is not connected

josegarcia asked 1 year ago
There is a note in the hookup guide that says the antenna must be connected before power. I also see this in a Septentrio video. But I could not find any information in the Mosaic hardware manual to get more details?  Why is this necessary and what happens if the antenna is not connected when power up or if it is disconnected?

There’s gain adjustment at boot.

Generally this advice also protects against shorting and high in-rush currents damaging the DC Bias inductor as you fumble with the connector.
