Default DGPS ANTENNA PROBLEM

I have a Cetrek Chartnav 345 chartplotter on my SeaCat. After sitting on the trailer for about 6 months, i lost the satellite fix and cant get it back. I checked my DGPS antenna for any signs of damage, nothing noticable on the antenna or the cable. I unscrewed the antenna mast and cleaned the contact. No help. What may be the problem? Any suggestions?? Thanks, Don Also, will any DGPS antenna work on this unit, or does it take a special one for each brand of plotter? Also, what about do they sell for and who may be the most reasonably priced.

Could be the unit and not the antenna. They have an internal battery to hold data. I would call the factory.
