No downloading; there is no data storage. Receivers stream to a computer or to the TSC1 survey controller.
No screen; LED lights indicate operating mode.

How To’s and FAQ
SuomiNet is an international network of GPS receivers, configured and managed to generate near real-time estimates of precipitable water vapor in the atmosphere, total electron content in the ionosphere, and other meteorological and geodetic information. Visit the SuomiNet Home Page.
SuomiNet Trimble 4700 Firmware
SuomiNet R-Utilities for Linux
This is a set of tools for configuring or downloading data from the Trimble 4700 receiver using a direct serial connection. Note R-Utilities is currently the only product that allows you to configure a met device.
WinStream - SuomiNet R-Utilities for a Windows platform
See description for R-Utilities, above.
Notes on Software Use for SuomiNet
Remote Controller (above) supports configuration of all SuomiNet functionality except the configuration of a meteorological sensor. However, you can view the met results using this interface.
Some SuomiNet functionality such as Binex streaming, disabling multipath, met initialization, and changing phase bandwidth are not available through Configuration Toolbox.
General Notes on R-Utilities
Use the following command to change the receiver’s baud rate:
./rsetup -d/dev/ttys0 -h9600,8,o,1 -238400,8,n,1,0
where -h (host) indicates the current comm port settings on the receiver (in this case, 9600, 8, n, 1) and the -2 specifies the desired change (in this case, 38400, 8, n, 1.) The extra 0 means that flow control is disabled.
For rcontrol, you can now specify -dynamic or -static in the command line and the carrier phase with be updated accordingly. If this option is not specified, -static is the default.
