I was hoping to use an NTRIP caster. I'm in Texas. Looking at the
references online, there are NO NTRIP sites in Texas. The nearest is
I heard about the CORS system. There is a CORS station at University of
Texas only 11KM away.
How is that different from NTRIP? Can I reference a CORS data stream in
I am associated with the Austin, Tx Hackerspace, an amateur tech lab
(well, many here are professionals across many disciplines).
One project I proposed would be a GPS reference such as NTRIP (or CORS,
I guess). It would be a fun project and place us as a dot on a map. It
is not possible right now because we don't have a reliable internet
connection, we only have Clear wireless internet and they throttled us
back due to the bandwidth we used. But, I proposed using one of these
units like a LEA-6T with a wireless modem to the servers below for
computation and Internet availability, all solar-powered and no bulkhead
wiring through the roof (we are not allowed to modify the roof). I
don't have a question in this regard, just wanted to mention it.
