I remember when...
Before NTRIP we would have had to do modem banks (ugh!) and/or oddball proxy server setups...
@gschrock 'S comment got me thinking.
I remember when:
- We used to have to type on manual typewriters
- If you wanted to know the distance, you got out the tape and measured it
- If you wanted air conditioning, you rolled down the windows of the truck
- Your data collector was a pencil and a field book
A search of NTRIP says origin around 2004. We were streaming corrections through a serial port to a software converter TCP/IP (talltech technologies I think) and through our network to a static ip and port - picking up same with a cdma modem in the field. This was in 2000/2001 and took awhile to stabilize as Verizon kept changing their network protocols. Not much different than RTK today, just more moving pieces.
I remember when during "gas wars" Sunoco 190 was 18.9 cents/gallon and smokes (cigarettes) were 0.25 cents/pack. And Doctors smoked! 😎
And the office smelled like ammonia most of the time.
I remember when the golf greens were sand, my father was upset cause he had a stake dinner at a night club and they charged him $1.50, a candy bar was a nickel.
