Hi all !
I’m interested to extend the signal of the Base to the Rover using some repeater 869 MHz. Due to ground configuration, the signal is now blocked by a hill and I would like to use the rover on the other side… The idea is to install a repeater on the top of the hill to reach the rover on the other side.
Is another SimpleRTK2B is able to work in between as a repeater with specific configuration ? If not, do you any reference of devices able to do this job ?
Regards.

Hi Korus,
Our LR radios can work in repeater mode, nevertheless we have not validated this configuration and we don’t know if the latency will be a problem or not. Therefore we are interested in supporting this test, if you could send an e-mail to info@ardusimple.com we will guide you through the process and later we can inform the community if it was successful.
