How To’s and FAQ

SuomiNet-specific Resources

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.
