11 - Base Station Using User Supplied Radio Modems

flag-de.png

Any radio modem can be connected to a Base Station to send out DGPS correction messages. You can connect these radios to the base station via:

  1. The internal RS232 D-sub connector beneath the front panel
  2. The internal Molex connector beneath the front panel
  3. The external waterproof Bulgin connector

The connections in each of these positions are the same, and so only one radio should be connected at any one time to any of these connectors.

  1. Press the ‘OK’ button on the front panel
