rollover or year 2000?
Our 530's appear to have survived the rollover and I was pleasantly surprised. I could not connect to our base using RTK to confirm a precise position as we are broadcasting RTCM 3.x and the receiver firmware only accepts 2.3. Anyone know a workaround?
Also, anyone having problems with the rollover or is it more like the year 2000 issue?
The short answer to your problem would be to change your base to output RTCM 2.3 and then the rover could accept it. Depending on what kind of base you have you could create a second mount point if you are using the internet to connect to it. If you are using radios then every other rover that connects is going to lose the GNSS ability when you degrade to RTCM 2.3. Another option is to have two radios connected to different ports running on different frequencies with different corrections.
Thanks for the post. I am glad to hear things are still working.
You have survived nothing yet, your Doomsday may be UTC midnight 4/06/2019, tonight.
I am off for two 2 hour plus OPUS observations, plus tie ins to two previous control points on the same filed map. Will probably set on the two new points again on Monday just to check my receivers. Have 7 GPS points in this subdivision to date and with all side shots to other monuments find nothing off more than 0.10'. More than required for swimming pool plans, essentially the GPS is for elevations. The filed map tie ins are investments in future surveys. Most of this work is in one local township that has low impervious coverage limits and on average 40% of pool plans in that township have required variances. Many of those were over the limit before a pool was even planned. Mitigation of runoff is in my wheelhouse.

Looks bad for me.
I logged normal static data from 22:30 to 23:59 on 06Apr. My older receiver does return 1999 date, but I edited the date per usual. Opus error reports “fewer than 3 base receivers data available”.
Very sad. Hopefully today’s trial will be better.
Maybe the rollover messed up batch uploading of cors files.
I had 2 receivers for more than 2 hours yesterday, but they had not been run since 2018, due to the very wet winter. Both were very slow to download ephemeris and collect enough satellites. Both returned 1999 dates which I had edited and have good solutions in my post processor. Did not senf off to OPUS because it was past UTC midnight before I had them ready, so in caution I will do it latter today. Because they have sat so long I may also have internal battery issues, which I have been expecting since I bought them well used. Both will go on the exact same points Monday afternoon.
