Trimble RTX frequency and baud rate settings change details

There is an upcoming Trimble RTX beam transition in Australia/Pacific & Latin America regions. This will affect all Trimble GNSS receivers using CenterPoint RTX, FieldPoint RTX, RangePoint RTX, ViewPoint RTX and xFill correction services via satellite delivery. This beam change helps to support continuous RTX technology enhancements such as additional GNSS constellations and station upgrades, and will improve the customer experience. 

  • Australia/Pacific: The new beam RTXPA will become operational on August 2nd, 2021.  All users of the current RTXAP beam will need to migrate to the new RTXPA beam during the 8 week overlap period, with a frequency and baud rate settings change on their GNSS receivers before September 30, 2021.
  • Latin America: The new beam RTXAL will become operational on August 2nd, 2021.  All users of the current RTXLA beam will need to migrate to the new RTXAL beam during the 8 week overlap period, with a frequency and baud rate settings change on their GNSS receivers before September 30, 2021.

What is Changing

Trimble RTX is being moved to new satellite beams.
The frequency and baud rate will change as shown in the table below:

Region Name Frequency (MHz) Baud rate (bps) Required by
Australia and Pacific RTXPA 1545.2725 1200 September 30, 2021
Latin America RTXAL 1545.285 2400 September 30, 2021

 

Note: You will no longer receive correction data from the current RTXAP satellite (1539.8325 Mhz, 600 bps) or the RTXLA satellite (1546.2400 Mhz, 1200 baud) beyond September 30, 2021!

When is it happening?

Australia/Pacific: The new beam RTXPA will become operational on August 2nd, 2021.  All users of the current RTXAP beam will need to migrate to the new RTXPA beam during the 8 week overlap period, with a frequency and baud rate settings change on their GNSS receivers before September 30, 2021.

Latin America: The new beam RTXAL will become operational on August 2nd, 2021.  All users of the current RTXLA beam will need to migrate to the new RTXAL beam during the 8 week overlap period, with a frequency and baud rate settings change on their GNSS receivers before September 30, 2021.

How will I continue to receive Trimble RTX corrections after this change?

Within the Trimble RTX settings on your GNSS receiver, change the Trimble RTX satellite by manually entering the frequency and baud rate for the new satellites. Details are shown in the table above.
