Regarding that chapter, you should use as your network topology, the
example 4 (Wifi) or 5 (mobile phone network), and replace on both of
those examples the block "RTKNAVI" by Spider (and maybe move Spider to
the "Base Station" or reference receiver's PC, and "STRSVR" to the
remote receiver's PC) . If there is going to be line of sight between
both locations, a Wireless Router or Access Point connected at the Base
Station's PC Ethernet port (or wirelessly), an a USB wireless adapter
with detachable antenna at the rover's PC (this one, for example:
http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-WN722N), with both
antennas (the AP/router and the USB adapter) replaced by a directional
Wifi antenna like this one:
should do it. (Note that the antenna does not include the coaxial cable
needed to connect the antenna to the AP/router (that by the way has to
have a detachable antenna also, in order to replace it), but that cable
can be easily found on computer stores). The USB wireless adapter used
at the remote receiver's PC should be placed inside the box behind the
antenna, were the RP-SMA connector is.

My fault, no examples...but at least RTKLIB has a manual....and there
are screen captures on it!! At the GNSS positioning techniques FOSS
world, those features are not very usual... ;-). Based on that brief
descriptions, you would be able to find better explanations somewhere
else: papers, doctorate theses, GNSS equipment manufacturers, etc.

You will be sensing large structures, right? In that case, I would go
with "static" (static rover, static reference), not "moving-base"
(moving rover, moving reference) nor "fixed" (constant distance between
rover and base). Maybe you could go with kinematic too, if the real-time
displacements and deflections of the structures studied can be
considered as "movement".

I think I never fully understood this option, I can't give you a better
explanation than that stated on the manual, so if anyone has a better
understanding of it please enlighten us.
