Most of the time RTK needs to be dealt with by individuals who at least have some idea of the principles. BUT.
I was given a challenge.
Build an L1 RTK system that could be just turned on and it would transmit its position back to base. This was to be used in an operational setting.
I am happy to report that I am now building prototype #2 that will be deployed next month by non surveyors.
The dev version of reachview helped massively as I am now getting 100% success rate with connecting to a wifi modem that is powered up 30 seconds before the reach is powered up. From that point on the VRS kicks in and float is achieved within seconds and a stable sub metre position easily within 5 minutes.
