Has anyone done any interoperability testing yet with their RS2 as a base and Trimble and Topcon based rover receivers?
I’m led to believe there could be an issue with the lack of certain RTCM 3 antenna descriptor messages, basically MT 1007 (Antenna descriptor and ID) and 1008 (Antenna serial number) that Topcon and Trimble receiver expect to see, that could preclude certain of these receivers from getting an RTK fix using an RS2 as a base.
Thanks that would be very useful. Am assuming the MT’s are pre-existing within the Ublox standard config and/or RTKlib and its a relatively straightforward coding exercise to present them as options within the ReachView GUI.
Thanks Edgar. Quite Interesting that it worked, as Spectra is basically a Trimble receiver.
I tried with a Trimble agricultural receiver AG372/AG382 (the latter only sold to AGCO but I digress) supposedly running current firmware and it only likes MSM7 messages from the base not the MSM4 messages delivered by the RS2.
Your Spectra 80 is obviously very happy to accept MSM4 corrections. Well done!
Hello to all,
my name is Mario from Cagliari (Italy) and i speak english very badly
Has anyone done any interoperability testing yet with their RS2 as a base and “Geomax Zenith 35 Pro” rover receivers?
Mario could always try and use NTRIP via the GSM/GPRS modem onboard the Zenith. He would need configure sending corrections from the RS2 base out via a caster, to stream to the Zenith. Something like SNIP (basic/free) would be fine.
The two receivers definitely couldn’t use their local UHF and LoRa radios to communicate natively. I’d hope that was fairly obvious as LoRA and UHF are chalk and cheese compatibility wise.
