Watching a HiPer HR connected to RTK Network, tracking 8 GPS, 7 GLONASS, 4 SBAS (not used in RTK solution), 3 Galileo, and for the first time ever 4 Bei Dou satellites.

Total in view is 21 positioning satellites.

Admit it: You can't really retrace the footsteps of a surveyor who only had GPS, Russian, and European satellites if you are using Chinese satellites too.

You really need to disable those satellites that weren't part of the original survey.

Oh snap! That means all of the surveys done when  GPS 2A-20 and GPS 2A-26  were still around can't be retraced... And reading those almanacs and ephemerides are too tough to make sure that same sats are in exactly the same place... All this Kepplerian orbital mechanics stuff  is beyond me... I'm going back to astro observations 😀

If you cannot see it, it isn't there.
