Hi Normand:

There's a couple of  important differences between the M12+T and the UT+ 
units and one's the clock speed.
The M12+T has a standard deviation due to the saw tooth error of about 9 
ns whereas the UT+ has about 50 ns.
Since there are about 24 GPS satellites in orbit and the Earth blocks 
you view of about half of them a 12 channel receiver has a channel 
available for each one.  But the older UT+ receivers have only 8 
channels and so sometimes keep tracking a sat that's much lower in 
elevation than another because of lack of channels.

Have Fun,

Brooke Clarke, N6GCE
