That’s what I assumed too. That’s why I was surprised to see such long intervals between corrections.
I am using Emlid’s LoRa radios. As far as I know, there are no baud rate settings for them. It’s highly unlikely that the radios themselves are not working well. This happens even when the two units are only 50 ft apart. And the radios seem to work even when they are a few km apart blocked by heavy forest.
But perhaps they are trying to send too much info, or confusing info, or conflicting info, or something like that. I will focus in on the radio settings and correction data.
I have been able to achieve a solid fix by eliminating constellations. Just using GPS & Glonass at 1 second update rates, I can get a solid lock, but the aging seems to be locked into 7 seconds and therefore, the rover location roves around more than I’d like. Nonetheless, it shows lock now and never drops it.
For reference, my baseline was only 15 meters when I did this test. And, I still only ever get a max of 18 base stations and 37 rover stations as reported by the Rover. However, the base itself says it sees 23.
Both GPS and Glonass constellations are set at 1Hz Update Rate on the rover and base. But oddly, the status screens on both units show strong R & S Constellation signals too even though they are turned off.
Rover correction input is LoRa 902MHz at 9.11 kb/s format RTCM3. Base output is the same.
If the scale of the location map on the status screen is correct, I am getting about 3cm precision instead of 1cm. Good for my needs, but still disappointing.
Please make sure you’ve updated your Reach M2 to the Reach Firmware 26. This will help to ensure that your receiver has all the latest improvements within the software.
The age of differential of 7 seconds is a rather big value. It might happen because the radio channel selected for LoRa is occupied for some other purposes as well. Please try changing the LoRa frequency bands to check if it helps.
I’d recommend setting up the frequency at the highest allowed value in your area. If the range is not sufficient for changes of the age of differential, go down with the 1-2 MHz steps until you find the frequency that works best for your area.
I see that you’ve created another thread on this topic. Let’s continue the discussion on it there to keep all the details in one place.
