Independent programming of SimpleRTK2B and SimpleRTK2BLite

I purchased these two boards with related antennas to develop my own independent basic solution and rover programming everything with U-Center. I’d like to equip both with XBee 3. But is it possible to do this or do you have to follow the configurations of ArduSimple?
Is there a guide to tab programming in addition to ready-made configuration files?
Thank you.

You can connect XBee 3 radios. The challenge will be finding the right settings for broadcast of RTCM with minimum latency and avoiding overflows on the radios. Unfortunately we don’t provide configuration files for third party radios.

All right. I would like to make the base and the rover with your products that seem very good to me. I already have SimpleRTK2B and SimpleRTK2BLite what can I buy to complete the job?
2 Radio Module Medium Range (MR) https://www.ardusimple.com/product/radio-module-medium-range/ not be okay? Can I cover an area like a soccer field? Thank you for your help.

Yes MR radios can finish the connection. If there is no obstruction between base and rover, the MR should be enough for a soccer stadium.

But would it be possible to configure a base and more rovers, for example 5? Could the rover be SimpleRTK2BLite, or does it need to be all SimpleRTK2 (base and rover)? Thank you.

Both simpleRTK2B and simpleRTK2Blite can be configured as base or rover.
MR radios don’t support multi-rover, this is only possible with the LR radios.
