WIFI NTRIP Master and LR Radio on 1 Rover

Q&A forumCategory: QuestionsWIFI NTRIP Master and LR Radio on 1 Rover
Denis asked 1 month ago
Hi,
I have a base station set up broadcasting over both Radio and NTRIP at the same time (using a sheild). This works great. I was initially during testing swapping between the LR radio module and ntrip wifi master on the rover all is well. 
I would ideally like to have both receivers on the rover and be able to swap between them with a switch. Is it possible to wire both receivers into the XBee socket on the rover with a switch on the power line to select which device I want to use.
Would this be enough or will I need to put a resistors on the TX and RX?
Looking at the pinout I should only need to connect pins (1) VCC (10) GND, (2) DOUT for what I need (If I need to reset or configure I would be doing this on the board)
If I can do this I can place put the rover in a sealed unit and just flip the switch depending on which receiver I want to use.
Apologies for the long question.
Thank you.
Denis

Nice implementation! You will also have to switch the transmission line, otherwise you will have multiple TX trying to drive the same pin.

Perfect. Thank you.
I’m going to use a DPDT switch with ON – Off – On.
Wiring the Power and Tx lines to through the switch. Am I right in assuming I don’t need the Rx (DIn) connected in this configuration?
Thanks again.
