That will be very interesting.

Yes, but what you are seeing in the PSD plot is the sum of multiple
things, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou at least.

I guess if the F9P plot of the ANN-MB0 shows low power at L5, that's a
clue it's the F9P input filters.   It totally makes  sense  for a
receiver to filter what it is not trying to receive, modulo cost and
variable phase delay due to tighter filters.

The graph you posted shows reduce power at E5a and L5, but as you say
that includes receiver filters.

Usually I see BeiDou written B1/B2/B3 now, but I also think they have
changed their labeling.

Galileo has a confusing notion of E1/E2 at their 15755ish frquency.
Look at the graphic in the middle of
Of course that page could be wrong too.

I guess you need a Septentrio receiver too:

which I'm really not clear on but I think does E6.
