Hello everyone Does anyone have experience measuring a receiver with a u blox f9p chip and u-blox ANN-MB-00 Antenna for GNSS Dual Band in RTK in urban development, forest, on the border of forest and field, when part of the sky is covered with trees, buildings? Is it possible to get an error of 0.1 m relative to GCPs at a distance of 35 km from the base station? What Rover settings should I use (satellite systems, elevation mask)? I would be grateful for any relevant experience. Thanks!

It will be a challenge, especially in dynamic conditions. A few tips to increase your probability of success:
1. Mount the antenna on a 15-20 centimeter diameter ground plane, or consider a survey antenna.
2. Stay static.
3. Put the simpleRTK2B inside a box to increase performance.
4. All constellations active

Ardusimple, thank you! About 3 – What material should the Board box be made of?

Any material, it’s just to avoid airflow, humidity and direct sunlight hitting the board
