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 
systems.

Cheers,
