I'm not sure what receivers you are using, but if it's this one: 
http://www.nvs-gnss.com/products/receivers/item/2-nv08c-csm.html it seems 
to be L1 only, not L1+L2.  The antenna you are using covers 1574-1610 MHz, 
so while multi-system (GPS/Glonass) it is also L1 only. The GPS L2 
frequency is quite a bit lower, at 1227.6 MHz.

As far as I know, GPS L1+L2 receivers start around $750 used (eg. Trimble 
4000ssi on ebay) and much more new.
