[ntp:questions] Good GPS for attic?

I'm looking to use a GPS receiver as an inexpensive reference clock for
an xntpd time server. I'd like to leave the GPS in my attic for
convenience and asthetics.
A while back I bought a Radio Shack DigiTraveller GPS for this purpose.
It's ideal on almost all counts except that it can't keep a consistent
lock from my attic. It's close though (maybe if I could mount it above
the insulation that would help).
Can anyone recommend another inexpensive GPS that might be more
sensitive? I don't want fancy, just plain-jane with a serial port that
can spit out NMEA strings for xntpd. PPS would also be nice, but I'd be
happy without it too. (I'm mostly doing this to have a time reference
for household computers, and also just the experience of setting this
up. Fantastic precision would be nice but certainly not required for
this particular project.)
