I should pre-empt this with a "this is just a guess / suggestion" warning!

If it's an NMEA input, any old Antenna should fit - it's the power supply may be the issue.

Do you have a standby / handheld? I know the Garmin GPS12/72/76 all chuck out an NMEA signal on the data port - I suspect other data transferring handhelds will too. If you have one of them could maybe cobble something together until you source the correct antenna?
