LS as a network rover?

#4
On related note, is there any reason I would need to use a different coordinate conversion to state plane in the collect screen when using rtn v base/rover? I set up to use VT rtn (trimble version) and picked NAD83(2011) for reference frame (same as when using base). Using base/rover I hit known points in VT state plane, but switching to rtn I get 3.5 feet difference.
The coordinate system I have the page set to is HTDP WGS84(ITRF2008) to NAD83(2011)/NAVD 88/SPCS83. Seems like a double correction, but why does it give me double correction on one and not the other when both base reference frames are the same?

It sounds like you have the wrong reference frame selected for the RTN profile. This RTN may be broadcasting WGS84 coordinates instead of NAD83.

that's what I'm thinking. Yet VT rtn specifically says it's reference frame is NAD83. I looked at my MN profile and I've set that to WGS84 a few years back (also a trimble network). Are all the Trimble rtn's broadcasting WGS84 while stating their reference frame is NAD83? The Leica rtn in NY states NAD83 and that's what I set the profile reference frame to. Seems to be different definitions of reference frame going on that could cause problems.
