FAQs

Real-Time Kinematic surveying relies on a live data-link between the two receivers. Modern GNSS receivers have an integrated radio to provide this link at a broadcast power of one to two watts. By connecting an external radio data-link, like the Harxon HX-DU8608D, your survey range can go from a 3-4 km radius to a 35 km radius.

A base booster radio is a cost-effective method of broadening your survey reach. When paired with an antenna tripod, your reach can extend up to 35 km from your base. Bench Mark Equipment and Supplies has new and used stock available with prices varying accordingly.

An external base radio can also function as a repeater radio. A repeater radio receives the corrections broadcast by the base on its internal radio and re-broadcasts them. This allows you to extend the reach of your RTK corrections into dead zones in your survey area.

More About the Pacific Crest RTK Repeater

The Benefits of Pacific Crest

There are so many advantages to working with the ADL Vantage Pro from Pacific Crest Radio Canada. Not only does it feature intuitive and user-friendly interfacing, allowing you to change your frequency on-site, but it is also made to withstand the demands of the job and the obstacles of any job site. Rated an IP67 for exposure to water and dust, the ADL Vantage Pro 35 is submergible in up to 1 meter of water. If you are working in a dead zone, the combination of the Hemisphere S320 GNSS RTK Receiver and the ADL Vantage Pro 35 allows you to use your external radio just like a Pacific Crest RTK repeater. The Vantage 35 is backwards compatible with all existing Pacific Crest radios, most Trimble radios, and may be configured for use as a Base Radio with most GNSS Survey Receivers on the market today.
