How a add GNSS models and antenna models in TBC

    Hello TBC Team,

    I was wondering is there any way to create customized GNSS model and antenna model in TBC? Our device has been calibrated on NGS but still cannot find in TBC.
    Is there any possible to add models? Thanks for your kindly help in advance:)

    Hey Frank,

    If you can provide the antenna details I'll push this over to the TBC team to have it added in the next antenna ini file update. 

    Regards,

    Hi Shane,
    is there any way to manually add antenna into the ini file? I found out that in NGS antex files there are calibrations for a long time which are not available in TBC.
    Maybe there is some tool which can convert .atx files into Antenna.ini? or maybe can you share specification of this file as well as .pct or .ngs files?

    thanks,
    Grzegorz

    Hey Grzegorz, 

    I don't think this is something that Trimble really supports or wants its end users doing for several reasons. 

    The proper steps are to submit this to your dealer and we can get the antennas added into the next ini update (usually once a month). 

    That being said, I know some advanced users out there that understand the correct coding, etc  and are able to add antennas to be used in TBC. They normally need to make a separate copy of this as once the  update goes through with Trimble it will replace that file (this is why its best to get added through your support portal). I don't think this is something that Trimble supports though. 

    I've sent an email to the engineers just to confirm the above and get their thoughts. In the meantime if there is any antennas that you need or want to see added to the file you can send the details and I'll push over to the correct team to get them added in the next update. 

    Regards,

    Shane Lyons

    Thank you Shane for a quick and comprehensive answer. From time to time I have data from some cost-efficient receivers and I have a problem finding antenna models for them. That is where my question came from. This time I have a problem with ESVE600 antenna. Its weird that that Trimble does not convert the whole .atx file to the NGS. There are a lot of calibrations which can be useful for the users. Waiting a month to add it into TBC is a misunderstanding.

    Frank -  Did you every get your antenna added to TBC?

    Shane -

    I also need an antenna added the Hemisphere631.  Wont let me attach the calibrations, available here https://geodesy.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/    How long will it take to get included?  

    Thanks.

    Hello Shane,

    I would like to ask if it is possible to add support for Emlid's Reach RS2+ GNSS receiver antennas in the Trimble Business Center software. I would be very grateful if you could consider including these antennas in next update.

    Best regards,
    Katarzyna Strząbała

    Hi Shane,

    Thank you for your reply.

    The file for this antenna is located on the website to which I posted the link below. I don't know why I can't upload the antenna calibration file.

    HI Team,

    May I request to add antenna type TWIVC6050, please. We have bundles of this type of antenna arriving for installation within our CORS.

    Many thanks

    Maz

    Dear Shane,

    Can you please also add a Satlab Freya antenna?

    Hello Shane,

    I recently acquired a TBC license and encountered an issue with Kolida K7 and K30 receivers. Although both models are NGS certified, their antennas are not automatically listed when entering their data.

    I've checked the antenna parameters on the Geodesy NOAA website, and here are the direct links for each model:

    Kolida K7:
     
    https://geodesy.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=KOLK7_NONE.003
    https://geodesy.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=KOLK7_NONE.atx
     
    Kolida K30:
     
    https://geodesy.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=KOLK30_NONE.atx
    https://geodesy.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=KOLK30_NONE.003

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.
