UHF Radio Range Problems

Your Base / Rover RTK pair used to have great radio range … but something has changed and now you can only go a short distance from the base before the rover loses lock.

This is a common complaint and there are several standard issues that contribute to this issue:

  • Multiple Users on Same Frequency
  • Receiver (Rover) Sensitivity Setting
  • Base Output Power
  • CSMA Throttling
  • Bad Antennas
  • Bad Antenna Connectors
  • Internal COAX Failures
