We need you to update your RTX frequency settings by December 30, 2020

We apologize for the short notice, but our satellite provider has just advised us that we must transition immediately to a new satellite beam which will require you to change your frequency and baud rate on your GNSS receiver before December 30th, 2020. This affects all GNSS receivers using CenterPoint RTX, FieldPoint RTX, RangePoint RTX, ViewPoint RTX and xFill correction services.

We know this is a very busy time of year for you, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are acting as quickly as possible to ensure you can continue to access high quality corrections without service disruption. As 2020 draws to a close, we would also like to thank you for your on-going business and loyalty. We wish you a very happy holiday season, and we look forward to serving you throughout a brighter 2021. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you through this transition.

What is Changing

Trimble RTX is being moved to a new satellite beam, RTXLA. You will no longer receive correction data from the RTXSA satellite (1539.8325 Mhz, 600 bps). Please change the frequency and baud rate on your GNSS receivers to use the new RTXLA satellite (1546.24 MHz, 1200 bps) as soon as possible.

Region Name Frequency (MHz) Baud rate (bps) Required by
Latin America RTXLA 1546.2400 1200 December 30, 2020

When is it happening?

The new RTXLA satellite beam is available now, and we encourage users to switch immediately to the new frequency and baud rate. The old RTXSA satellite will stop broadcasting correction data on December 30th, 2020.

How will I continue to receive GNSS corrections after this change?

You need to manually input the frequency and baud rate for the RTXLA satellite beam:

  • From the Trimble RTX settings on your GNSS receiver, change the RTX satellite by manually entering the frequency and baud rate for the RTXLA satellite, shown in the table above.
