Distortion? Do you perhaps mean large amounts of radio frequency
interference from all the electronic gadgets around? If so, the answer is
to get an antenna in a quiet location, and orient it carefully to minimise
interference (even at the expense of some signal loss). I agree with
others who have recommended a GPS system as a better choice - look for the
Garmin GPS18x LVC:
I've used the earlier GPS18 LVC successfully with both Windows and FreeBSD
