Troubleshooting Trimble R8-2 GNSS Base Receiver

Troubleshooting Trimble R8-2 GNSS Base Receiver

Good Day Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have an issue with my Trimble R8 GNSS base receiver. While initiating an RTK survey my TSC2 controller remains on the "building base" list and won't proceed further (station index, reliability prompt, etc.). I have verified this with two TSC2 controllers with the same luck. The only thing I can say...about the R8 base was that a strong gust of wind had blew it over, crippling it. It was sent back to Trimble for repair. It was returned to us with a clean bill of health, but I'm not sure if somethings missing? Any feedback from GNSS user that can possibly guide us back on track would be helpful.

Best Regards,
MOS 1361 USMC - Semper Fi
