Is this between two reach units or between a reach and another (say ARGN) reference station?
I use GLONASS primarily because all the Auscope and ARGN reference stations are GLONASS enables, but only some are Beidou enabled.
No idea why you are not seeing Beidou, but I am getting good results with GLONASS + all the others.
If it is between reach units. I know it sounds obvious, but ensure the base really does have that clear sky view. and has a good 20 mins to settle.
See those trees…
Seriously, They are a problem for the base!
I had/have the same issues. I spent ages waiting to get a fix with my base in a similar location to you. If I used the ARGN reference I got FIX in minutes, even seconds. Moved my base way out into the open and bang far, far better results.
With your base in a really, really clear area the rover can cope with a few trees, with both around trees, welcome to FLOAT.
Windy days make it even more critical.
Hope this helps.
Can you please check one thing in the field? It seems our settings do not handle a certain scenario properly. When you are disabling GLONASS and enabling Beidou in one setting apply, it will not work. Can you disable both, then enable BeiDou and see if it will show new satellites inside ReachView?
Indeed, if I disable both GLONASS and Beidou and apply, then enable Beidou and apply, Beidou satellites are visible. However, after a restart Beidou satellites are no longer visible and the procedure must be repeated again.
This workaround does not work for SBAS satellites.
Space Based Augmentation System SBAS signals come from geostationary satellites, they broadcast corrections which are optimised for a specific region, the European EGNOS or US WAAS, but while transmitting their corrections they serve as additional satellites in the constellation, which is how they are used in RTK. If I remember correctly they have their ID numbers of over 100 to identify them in any GNSS. So as they already have a unique ID (of over 100) sticking an S in front of that number is superfluous.
