First post so sorry if this is in the wrong place/category. I was using the Reach RS+ survey kit (base and rover) yesterday through a big nasty rainstorm. I set up the base over a known point in a wide open area with good sky view and at a time with good satellite availability. However, when using the rover and receiving corrections over LoRa from the base, I could never achieve good enough AR validation to get a fix, only float. It was driving me nuts. Sorry I don’t have a log file. However when I went out today with a nice clear sky with no rain I was able to get a fix with maxed out AR validation at 999.9 within a minute. The only thing different was the weather.
Has anyone else encountered anything similar working in a rainstorm? I also think there could’ve been some water damage from my outing yesterday that was affecting it despite it IP67 rating. It was never submerged at any time but there was a lot of rain. The rover unit now has this problem where after it has been off for hours the LED lights kick on and all blink/flash simultaneously. It was worse yesterday than today. I just now popped off the top plastic dome cover exposing the water/dust seal/gasket and antenna and did see some drops of water. I took a can of compressed air to it and I’m letting it air dry now before putting top cover back on. I didn’t want to disassemble any further for fear of voiding any warranty.
