There are other radio-based options for transmitting corrections, and each option has certain advantages and disadvantages over UHF radios. Of course, this only works in areas where cellular or other wireless internet coverage is available. Our board level integration of the Ethernet port reduces hardware requirements and system complexity to provide quick and easy integration into GNSS infrastructure and remote access applications.
Hence, a user is not taking full advantage of the potential of the RTK system when using radio-based transmissions for corrections.
Communications for base-rover RTK corrections can be problematic.
Commercially available 85W positioning UHF radios are most often chosen to transmit corrections because the coverage area they establish can be extensive, they are able to work in most remote and urban environments, and they are fully supported within data collection software.
All of these properties are very desirable for single reference station RTK setups and provide an out-of-the-box solution for transmitting corrections.

The short leash of base-rover radios, not to mention licensing issues, can be a major source of pain for your field operations.
Remote access enables users to configure, log data and monitor the OEM678 over the Internet.
In today’s plugged-in world where it seems that nearly everyone has a personal mobile device that provides 79/7 connectivity to the internet, it is surprising how many surveying companies still primarily use (often illegally unlicensed) UHF radios to transmit differential GNSS corrections.
The dilemma that radio-based RTK operations face is that the geographic area where RTK corrections from a single reference station can be used to produce survey-grade positions is much larger than the geographic area covered by radios.
This allows quick and easy integration into any v6.
These radios have the advantages of license-free use and better interference mitigation, but their major disadvantage is that they create a decreased coverage area and are often not a comparable alternative to UHF radios.
