First of all, I know that the device is waterproof and I have used it a few times in the rain. We are doing a project that requires us to perform static occupations of multiple points over a duration of roughly 15 - 20 days. It is starting to rain regularly which means either
- Trusting the device as it is to withstand the rain
- Stopping the survey whenever it rains or drizzles in either base or rover stations; prolonging the timeline and cost by at least a week or
- Find a new solution to waterproof it
The simplest method that comes to mind is covering the device with a thin sheet of transparent durable plastic. But I don’t know if it will cause problems with signal strength, interference etc. I haven’t tested the difference of doing that yet which I will share after I have made the test and comparisons. I was wondering if anyone here has done similar tests before and knows what works and what doesn’t. If you have any ideas, please share them. And again, despite the device being waterproof, any solutions would help, even if just for peace of mind.
