Change of Satellite Beam for Trimble RTX Services
To continue to provide quality of service, Trimble have announced that on 25th October 2016, the RTXEA satellite beam will stop broadcasting Trimble RTX™ corrections and a new frequency will be available on the satellite beam RTXAE.
Agricultural customers will be impacted as all Trimble RTX based correction services via satellite will be affected; including CenterPoint® RTX and CenterPoint RTX Fast, RangePoint® RTX, ViewPoint RTX™, Trimble xFill® and xFill Premium.
· The new RTXAE beam is currently active on 1539.8125 MHz, 2400 baud.
· RTXEA will stop broadcasting on 1539.9525 MHz, 600 baud as of 25th October 2016.
The Turney Fieldforce team are able to assist with the upgrade to all Trimble operating systems. Tractors will be charged at £250+vat, whilst combines require a detailed re-calibration and therefore the cost of the upgrade is £350+vat. Combines booked for a Winter Service, before 30th November, are eligible for a Special Price and will be upgraded for £150+vat.
- Customers, who have changed their receiver settings in December 2015 from satellite beam RTXEU to the new beam RTXAE, are already receiving corrections using the new satellite beam RTXAE.
- Egnos and Omnistar users will not be affected by these changes.
- After market kits including FM750/FM1000 and XCN2050 can be manually changed in the device GPS settings.
