Rover and Base kit, NO RTK led always on on base and led off on rover

Hi sorry I can’t reply to the previous thread. I posted this earlier today 
Hi, 
I purchased a rover and base station kit along with a rover+heading kit. Both kits came preconfigured and we have asked for a connection between the base and the rover+heading board. 
I am doing my tests outside, with both boards connected on POWER + GPS. The LEDs are blinking as they should: both have GPS fix blinking, the rover has XBEE>GPS blinking and the base station has GPS<XBEE blinking. The “NO RTK” led is on for about 10 seconds on power up then shuts off, but the “NO RTK” led on the base is always on. 
From my understanding this means that it is not sending any corrections to the rover. 
 
Is that correct and do you have any suggestions to fix it? Am I missing something? 
(I have not changed anything in the configuration, as we payed to have everything ready plug-and-play)
Thank you!
 
 
I now know that this is the expected behaviour for the base (RTK led on), thank you very much! 
But, I think there is still the problem of the RTK led being always off on the rover. Should it not be blinking if it was receiving data? 
Is there any way to check if the 2 boards are able to communicate? 
 
Thank you! PS: I made an account so that I have the possibility to reply but I don’t get the Google authentication code that is required when logging in.

Hi Valeria,
In the rover, led NO RTK:
– ON means not receiving corrections.
– Blinking means receiving corrections, but not possible to calculate RTK FIX yet.
– OFF means everything ok, RTK FIX.

So if on the rovers the RTK FIX led is off… it’s good!
