Self-referncing the RTK of base - good, bad, or makes no difference?

Just wondering if feeding the base it’s own correction signal is a bad thing, or makes no difference? I’m exporting the correction to rtk2go from my base, and the advantage of then importing it back in as a correction is that, at a glance of reachview, I can see my base is working correctly and I have the green dot where I expect it. I presume this artificial accuracy isn’t influencing the correction signal in any way?

If i read you correct, this is no good, you only have one set of correction from one location

This is called zero-baseline processing. It will work and will report you a zero vector from rover to base, so only interesting as an experiment, but completely useless for real application. However it is not harming the base mode output in any way.
