    Using an LS as base

    The way I do it is after I start the base I then switch to a WAAS float profile and go into collect on the base and start collecting a point. Then when you are done for the day you stop collecting that point on the base. You then go to files and tap collected with points and transfer the static...

    Gathering in Maryland

    No real results to give. It poured down rain and only one other person showed. We did some testing but limited due to rain. The person that did show up was running an older Topcon Hiper plus rover with a Topcon GB500 base. We had 4 shots under canopy that was located with a robotic total...

    The lock up is a known issues and is being worked on. They are having a hard time reproducing the behavior at the factory.

    I received this email from a customer today and I am not sure what to tell him. At one point JAVAD had an ArcPad extenstion, is it possible that an extension for collector be created? One in which the receiver (our Triumph 2’s) can get corrections from a base station.

    Why I preach multiple observations

    I know that point 113 was very skeptical as noted in my ?rtk description posted. I had little doubt that 112 was bad due to the amount of time between fixed epochs that agree which is what you are eluding to in your suggestion. Waiting the addition time on 112 I think would have been wasted...

    Why I preach multiple observations

    Matt you are correct I did stop the shot after it reached 240 epochs seeing as though I had more than 240 seconds of data. I typically do not care about validate since I repeat the observation anyway. Shawn, I understand how Jfield handles the collection of data as compared to other...

    Why I preach multiple observations

    Anyone who I have sold to or have heard my theory on taking shots in the woods knows that I preach taking multiple observations. DPOS is great but it is not a short cut in "Do I need to take more than one shot on this pin or not?". I will post some screen shots of a job that I am currently...

    Trouble with the LS today

    Check for an update. They are aware of the problem and I think they may have a fix in a new update.

    Taking accurate measurements in a difficult environment for GPS

    While this equipment is fantastic it is just another tool. Pick the best tool for the job. With that said there are ways to get shots under or near heavy canopy and obstructions. What you are looking for is a few epochs agree with each other that have at least 240 seconds between them. You...

    200 foot RTK limit

    I use the Tnc pole mount. It has a 5/8” thread that can be screwed onto a rover pole.

    200 foot RTK limit

    I had that problem about 2 years ago. It was a semi-severed connection on my radio antenna (the old style right where it went into the antenna base). New cable and back to normal. Sounds like you have a broken wire or two in your antenna cable to me or it is something is broken in your radio.
