Simultaneous UFH and TCP

I started a new job today that covered several square miles of rough terrain. Some points had no cell signal but were within UHF range of the base. Others were just out of UHF range but had cell signal. The base was on a new control point so I wanted a long duration base file for DPOS and I didn't want to stop and restart the base. A few questions.
1. Is it possible to make the T3 base transmit corrections on UHF and TCP at the same time?
2. Is it possible to stop and restart the base without interrupting recording? Or start a second correction stream without stopping the base?
3. Is it possible to stitch multiple base files together before sending them to DPOS?

How do you do it, Jim?

By sending the following GREIS commands to the T2 via the Terminal function in the phone app (JMT?):

dm,dev/tcpo/a
em,dev/tcpo/a,{rtcm3/1006:10,rtcm3/1008:10,rtcm3/1033:10,rtcm3/1003:1,rtcm3/1011:1}
dm,dev/tcpo/b
dm,dev/tcpo/c
dm,dev/tcpo/d
dm,dev/tcpo/e
set,net/tcpo/port,8010

I keep a copy of the command list on my phone, and when I need to run both TCP and UHF I copy the command strings en masse and paste them into the Terminal screen. (I may have to hit a Send button after that, I don't recall.) I need TCP communication in order to send the command, so it's best to do it while I'm at the base to make sure I don't wander out of TCP range before executing the commands.

Once that's done I can switch the rover between UHF and TCP at will and retain a connection to the base.

Hello John,
(1). Is it possible to make the T3 base transmit corrections on UHF and TCP at the same time?
This is implemented and will be available in the next release.
(2). Is it possible to stop and restart the base without interrupting recording? Or start a second correction stream without stopping the base?
It is related to the first question, so it will be in the next release also. You will be able to enable/disable interfaces on the fly.
(3). Is it possible to stitch multiple base files together before sending them to DPOS?
Possible to do, but maybe not necessary in terms of what I commented above.
Regards,

Will these options be made available on LS+ when it is running as a base?
