  • EGNOS

    EGNOS any use? Yea it is; for those jobs that require less than full RTK levels of precision (10/20mm), there are several handheld GNSS combinations on offer, all of which are EGNOS enabled. In survey terms, a simple single-frequency handheld can achieve 300-500mm in plan – not bad for a...

    Beeping Radio Handle? No communication working 1-man? We have had many experiences of poorly performing radio-handles; the newer series with the ‘humps’ are much better.
