AUSPS post processing and simplertk2b

I am interested as to whether anyone has been able to successfully post-process observations collected via a simpleRTK2B with AUSPOS? There’s a couple of previous threads here around the subject on here but no definitive black and white answer as far as I can see.
If anyone has done it can you advise the process you went through in regards to data collection and conversion of the UBX files (RTKCONV etc.)?  Also if possible could you comment on the quality of the results you obtained?
Thank you.

Not sure you’ve got a very large constituency, most are using in Europe and North America
I’ve just used RINEX data from NOAA CORS directly for L1 post-processing, you don’t have to wait a day, as most sites post hourlies, and to be honest 20-30 mins of data is usually sufficient. With clean data acquisition you should expect 100% ambiguity resolution, and 5 mm RMS or better convergence of solution. One of u-Blox’s strong points is very clean measurements, without cycle slips.
Did L1C/P+L2P with higher cost equipment until the ZED-F9 devices appeared.
In the USA data is predominantly GPS, GPS+GLONASS, very little support of GALILEO
I would suspect L1 + L2C would be fine with AUSPOS, you’d do better asking their sysadmin directly, than randoms on the interwebs. Submit some data, I’m sure the rejection is specific and automated.
Find a local surveyor, they’d know, and also if there are local reference stations and networks available.

If you can pull the CORS RINEX data for the stations behind AUSPOS you could likely use that to determine what signal sets they are working with.
