Are You Ready For The GPS Week Rollover?
I was surprised to see that the PM2 isn't affected. I haven't turned mine on in about a decade, but apparently they still work.
According to the email from Trimble we need at least firmware version 2.32; we have 4.84 on three R4-3 receivers and 5.35 on three R8s receivers so we should have a go for launch.
The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
GPS rollover is upon us!
I set 5 nails in the yard yesterday, in a line 5 feet apart. I collected 2.5 hours of data with 5 receivers, 1 new Javad, and 4 older units. I will download and process the data myself against a local CORS station and compare the results. I will also upload each file to OPUS to verify their software is getting the same results as mine, and everything is 5ft apart and in a line. Next week I will repeat the procedure and see if the results match. I am only concerned with static work with these old receivers, so this is the testing procedure I came up with.
Anyone else go through testing their equipment?
I don't think you need a careful test of accuracy. With this change, either it will process or it won't.
