Dual frequency receivers could solve this problem. You need both the rover and the base station receivers to be dual frequency.

Kind regards,

> Hi John.  I had completely overlooked the fact that the NV08C couldn’t utilize L2 as I had read a lot of information about using it in RTK setups.  I’m rather new to GPS.  My understanding is that without L2 I will not be able to get rid of ionospheric delay, which will increase error.  Could this be why my system isn’t performing as I hoped?  Can I get away with using an L1+L2 receiver on the Base Station and not on the Rover?

> Hello Yanging.  I tried instantaneous mode and it seemed much worse.  My Float solutions oscillated by several meters (instead of a tens of centimeters with a drift) and I couldn’t get a Fix.  I tried reducing the ratio in the other modes.  Although that got me a fix more easily, I was concerned that it wasn’t accurate, as it was not repeatable.
