This is easy. Install the GPS but use a very short antenna cable.
Then the output of a GPS is in two parts (1) A serial data stream and
(2) a pulse per second. Both of these can go over the LAN cable.
You never want a long antenna cable because of the losses in a long
run. It is best to keep that cable short and send the data from the
PS back over a digital cable
