    FCC license help ...

    I've had good experiences with National License (317.564.8018). They set me up for my VHF handhelds and my 35-watt UHF.

    Javad JMT-R

    I use Javad Terminal to send a GREIS string to my T2 base so I can have both UHF and TCP access from the rover. I also use JERCI when I need to put my LS up on a high rod. I run both on my OnePlus 6T phone, which also serves as the WiFi hotspot for my LS when using TCP.

    Superflous Steps in many places in the software

    I can confirm that it's an option in the release version. And thanks for pointing it out!

    DPOS and OPUS Comparisons

    I think etweet did a great job of explaining the concept. And I looked at a couple of specfic examples using the antex entries for a T-LS, and I now believe that Matt's finding of 0.05' horizontal difference isn't unreasonable. It may be on the outer edge of what one is likely to find -- the...

    DPOS and OPUS Comparisons

    I don't argue that antenna orientation is a best practice, but I remain skeptical of the magnitude of impact. The test Matt did is impressive in its duration -- I admire anyone who takes the time to run tests like this -- but I wonder how much of the very modest (statistically insignificant?)...

    DPOS and OPUS Comparisons

    I'm dubious about the concern for azimuth-dependent errors, especially in an RTK context. Most modern antennas have pretty tight designs, and unless you're including signals below a 10° mask (zenith angle = 80°) you're not likely to see much effect from misalignment. For example, a quick scan...

    @ point numbers ...

    It's more generalized than that, as I get them when using CRTN, which is strictly single-base RTK from actual antennas. For whatever reason, J-Field doesn't assign the base station its mountpoint name, it gives it an @ number instead. Not a big deal for me, I've never had trouble figuring out...

    LS Radio Range Suddenly Drops

    I didn't request it, I just told them that I had a 35w transmitter and they did the rest. I used Nation License out of Carmel IN.

    Eliminate Bucket from solution

    What's the origin of the term "jump fail"? I get the fail part, but what's trying to jump from where to where? Maybe the current position moves away from its start point beyond a certain tolerance, and an attempt is made to "jump" to a different integer solution, but that doesn't meet specs...

    Runaway Shots

    I believe that's consistent with what I've seen.

    Runaway Shots

    I generally run a profile that collects 1200 epochs, verifies, then auto-accepts and auto-restarts. Lately I've had some shots that don't accept and restart, they just keep running until I manually stop and accept them. What's causing this?

    Release 3.0.11.802

    I did have an anomalous situation last week in which the restarted shot didn't stop, it just kept on recording. I have the profile setup to store and restart after 1200 epochs plus verification, but I finally stopped this one manually after it hit 3000 or so clicks.

    Early Access Testing Feedback

    With the new J-Field release I was able to try this out for the first time today. I'm impressed! This will make tall setups much easier to manage. Nice work!
