Requires Delphi 5 Support Package.

The RTKCTRL program allows you to send the RTKCTRL/RTCMCTRL messages to a receiver.

The behaviour of these commands and there usage is based on the documentation in HH Details. The details of the options is described there. Basic operation is described here.

GENERAL UI STYLE.

    In lists that will be sent to the receiver the numeric value that will be sent is at the front of the text. It does look tacky but you know what is happening.

 

 

 

 

 

ERRORS

    You may see a number of errors when running the program

CANT FIND BPL

    If a dialog similar to the following is displayed you need to install the Delphi 5 support package, see the support page

 

COMM ERROR

This, not very good, error message means that you com port is in use. It doesn’t mean that yu are trying to use port 6.

 

NO RESPONCE

The program send the command and it didn’t get a reply. Baud rate is most likely wrong.

 

NACK

 

Nack returned from the receiver, this generaly means you selected something that isn’t supported.

OPERATION

 

The main screen of the system allows you to select from the 4 types of operations that are supported.

Select the option, select the Radio port.

Click on COM Port to configure the baud rate and parity that you are talking to the receiver at, the system doesn’t support breaks today.

 

RTCM IN

Selecting RTCM_IN shows the following dialog

Note the that Network button is greyed out, this is becuase you can not send a Network message without first sending a normal RTCM message.

When you click on the command button a RTCMCTRL command is sent with the settings as shown, followed by a COMMOUT RTCMIN command. If both of these are succesfull the network button becomes avaialble.

If you don’t want to send a network command just use the back command.

Selecting the network button show the network control dialog, custom networks are not supported at this time.

CMR IN

    Works the same as the RTCM_IN dialog, except that on pressing send a RTKCTRL message followed by a COMMOUT 49h, CMR input is sent.

RTCM OUT

    Note that you can disable, turn off RTCM output if desired, just select disable.

CMR OUT

    Note that you can disable, turn off CMR output if desired, just select disable

    Remember that the test program implements the HH commands. It doesn’t mean that the recevier supports it. (L1 Only for example)
