Emlid Ntrip horizontal 32-35 cm difference according to Turkey's goventment Ntrip Service

Hi Mehmet, could you reupload the photo? I can’t download this one.

My base station setup screen shots.

And my rover setup screen shots.

Today I permanently installed one of my rs2’s on the roof of my house. In this setup, I want to determine base point coordinates precisely, without depending on any source, and see whether these errors persist. How can I determine the coordinates of my base point through a static session without connecting to any source?

Today, I evaluated the approximately 11-hour static measurement I took last night with the 30-second Rinex data of 2 points of the Tusaga Ntrip broadcasting station, 49-50 km away from my location, with the emlid studio software and updated the base position. However, I encounter the same problem again. At 900 mt baseline, there is a difference of approximately 20 cm with the tusaga. Any comments are gratefully received.

Hi Mehmet,

How did you compare the two points?

Do you have any benchmark nearby to check with?

I agree with @merryna.anggriani on this.

You need to find some passive control marks to check this issue out. Also find out what datum/projection the passive marks are in. This is the only way you’ll find out what the issue is.

Contact your government Geodetic agency. I usually check our state’s RTN occasionally just to make sure I’m on the correct datum/projection and to verify the RTN status.

I usually have a maximum of 2-3 cm accuracy on passive marks established by the state and federal agencies.


I check it from the tusaga broadcast used in my country. I have been testing the accuracy of this broadcasting every 2-3 days for years at points whose coordinates are known, and there is usually a difference of 3-4 cm between points whose coordinates are known.However, I encounter this difference whether I get the base station coordinates from tusaga or specify them in static sessions. Emlid is not a widely used device in my country. I’m starting to be suspicious of coordinate systems. Despite my 2-3 weeks of effort, I still could not get a reliable result.

I compare it with the tusaga active ntrip broadcast used in my country. For years, we have been checking the accuracy of this publication every 2-3 days at points whose coordinates are known.

If things worked fine before for years… what changed?

Is the NTRIP RTN STATION you are having issues with, a new station you have never used or have been using for years?

Have you been using the same coordinate system for years?

I do not know much about “VRS” RTN, but others do here… wonder if your govt system uses this and may be part of the issue?

There was also a recent post about a user connecting to a TOPCON network which turned out to he the issue after switching to another network provider brand. So the issue in that case was the fault of the TOPCON network provider.

There is no problem with the current public broadcasting we use, but I bought 2 RS2s and installed one of them on the roof of my house and I want to be able to broadcast from emlid ntrip independently of the public broadcasting in my region. Naturally, when there is such a difference, I cannot trust emlid ntrip.

The update rate setting likely doesn’t affect horizontal mismatch. I initially thought the project’s coordinate system might not match, but since you achieved 2-3 cm accuracy with it, this cause can be ruled out.

Static processing might not be necessary. Instead, focus on ensuring the base uses the same datum as the source. Verifying with a benchmark will be helpful. Also, double-check with the NTRIP service about the datum they broadcast.

Additionally, Emlid NTRIP Caster just passes the message from the base to the rover. It doesn’t give any transformation, and the datum will depend on the base positioning.
