Hello All,

A little background first;

Sense the recent GPS week rollover I now have an issue with my static files from my Promark 500. I have updated the firmware in the receiver to the latest version available, it works like normal when connected to a base or Network. But I had to do a static session in a very wet tamarack swamp and found that the data has the wrong week in it. The only way to get this data to process was to use Spectra's Rinex converter and open the newly created files with text pad and manually change the dates.

So once I have the new Rinex files I sent the data to OPUS, and ran it through TBC to process. I am questioning the data from both programs now. TBC and OPUS differ by 5.3 feet.

So my question are this.

Is there a way to edit the date in the original ATOM file with out converting to Rinex, So I can just import directly into TBC?

Or Is it possible to change the date in the receiver before I start a static season?

Are there any other options aside from purchasing newer equipment?

Also why is there such a difference between TBC and OPUS when using the same data file?

Any help is greatly appreciated,

thanks,

Any chance one position is NAD83 and the other WGS/IGS ?

unfortunately not, I checked that also, The Wisconsin Network is set to NAD83/2011, And the Opus solution gives me both NAD83/2011 and IGS08, I made sure I am using the NAD83/2011 values. But oddly enough the IGS08 values fall closer the the TBC solution at 1.08'.

Thanks,

You updated the PM500 firmware to the post WNRO version: V6.8 already?

If so, and you are using the latest RINEX converter (4.7.2) then I am surprised that the generated RINEX has incorrect dates. I don't have a PM500 to test, but I have several PF500's and they seem to work just fine.
