Emlid Launches REACH RS2 Multi-Band RTK GNSS Receiver with Centimeter Precision
I thought about getting one, but opted for a slightly used South Galaxy G1. Very similar to the Trimble R10. It processes GPS L5 which was key for me. I'm not sure the Reach RS2 does?
I would like to know how this works out for you as well. I have been looking at this, not so much as a daily driver, but for those little quick things, and GCPs for drone work.
I would like to know how well it connects to WDS & Trimble network.
So I received my RS2 yesterday and did some testing. I got only 1 unit for testing but could not do a baseline static because my other units are on project sites.
Did a fast static observation and got the following RINEX file:

I have only used Sokkia & Topcon and the occational South brands and as far as I can remember time stamps are rounded off to the
nearest second. I am not sure if after you processed the data (kinematic) if the software will automatically round it off to the nearest
second in its computation. I usually process my data in kinematic mode for bathymetry survey to match each rover position with the
time stamp from the echo sounder.
Question : has anyone encountered RINEX files with decimal seconds part (see highlighted text) for the time component?
