I'm sure I'm having a PEBKAC moment.  Any help greatly appreciated.  I have a Hemisphere S320 / Eclipse antenna hooked up to a Pacific Crest ADL and a Hemisphere S320 / Eclipse run by Carlson 4.07 on a Ranger.  I can connect via Bluetooth to both.  I set them up using this guide:

https://www.ecomexico.net/proyectos/soporte/RUIDE/GPS/RUIDE%20RTK%20SYSTEM/How%20to%20Connect%20to%20Carlson%20SurvCE.pdf

I can set the base to "Autonomous" and have the 2 green lights say they're getting signal.  Get the 2 green lights for the rover also.  Everything seems ok, but I can't get a fix when I'm in the GPS survey screen.  Carlson has the GPS module.  Any ideas?  What are the common causes of Carlson not being able to talk to get a fix?  Pics attached.

Side note--I had the same problem on a S321+ base/rover setup I test drove from a guy selling on Kijiji (my boss sends me out to meet the most interesting people when it comes to buying equipment 🙂 ).  Their knowledge of the setup was extremely limited.  I also couldn't get a fix there.  For a number of reason, I passed on that setup.

I would approach my local dealer for assistance.   That's why they are in business
