Can I connect another antenna to the FieldBee RTK Base station?

To receive correction from FieldBee RTK Base station, the antenna needs to receive NMEA messages in RTCM x3 format, also receive GGA, VTG messages, update rate can be 5 or 10 Hz. For autosteer, it is needed to set up a baud rate for the 115200.

Possible connection:
GGA at 5Hz -yes
VTG at 5Hz – yes
GSA at 1Hz -yes
GSV at 1Hz – yes
GST at 1Hz – yes
ZDA at 1Hz – yes
Baud Rate of 115200 – yes

The best way to know it is to try it.

  1. Does anyone have a bracket adapter that enables the Fieldbee to be mounted to the standard John Deere Starfire tractor cab bracket? The Fieldbee supplied mounting plate does not work on John Deere’s bracket.

  2. My base station has a Battery Error showing on its data screen in tool app. What does this mean? How to resolve? Base station is no longer receiving satellites? Why? It was working only 4 hrs ago with same configuration. Battery error showed right after I did a firmware update. I have provided additional info to tech services through WhatsApp.
