Yours is the only Sure I have heard about with (perhaps) an antenna 
problem.  Whilst bearing in mind that this is a consumer-level antenna, 
have you asked for a replacement if your unit is less than a year old?

As you say, for some considerable time Garmin was sending out GPS 18x LVC 
units with faulty firmware.  Version 3.70 is OK, though.

Whilst the Oncore UT+ which Chris mentions may have better ultimate 
performance, I don't think you will see the difference in an NTP 
application on the great majority of PCs.  It doesn't come with an 
antenna, tracks only 8 channels (at least that's one I found on eBay), and 
also requires a connection lead to be assembled.  Looks nice, though!
