Typical Application - The Intuicom Wireless RTK Bridge has a flexible configuration
and can be used to satisfy a range of connectivity needs. Typical installations have the
RTK Bridge configured to connect to an NTRIP Caster where it provides mountpoint and
authentication information. Once connected to a mountpoint, it will stream its GPS point
position (from its internal L1 GPS) allowing the Network Correction Server (such as
Leica Spider) to generate individualized corrections or create a virtual reference station.
The unit receives these corrections via IP and then broadcasts them to receiving RTK
rover units.

Leveraging Existing Data Radios - The Intuicom Wireless RTK Bridge can be used to
supplement and existing wireless network, replacing the local base station GPS. Users
simply connect a third party base radio to the Data Out port on the front of the unit to
broadcast a copy of the correction stream. If no rover RTK users are utilizing Intuicom
Wireless Data Radios, the internal radio can be disabled to conserve power.

Figure 1-4: RTK Bridge Extending Carrier Data Network
Extending CDMA/GSM Data Service Reach – In this example, rovers are operating in an area
not directly covered by CDMA/GSM cellular data service. The rovers however are still within
the network of GNSS reference stations and thus can benefit from a network correction. Using a
high gain antenna on the CDMA/GSM cellular modem, a reliable connection can be established
allowing the RTK Bridge to connect to the Internet and the GNSS network server. Corrections
are streamed from the GNSS network server to the RTK Bridge where they are broadcast over an
Intuicom Wireless Data Network to all RTK rovers. In this case the rovers are utilizing Intuicom
1200 Data Link radios to receive the correction messages. Note that in this application, any
number of Rover users can receive the same correction messages broadcast from the RTK
Bridge. Furthermore, if the distance between the RTK Bridge and the rover users is great – the
RTK Bridge can be configured to report its position to the GNSS Network server as if it were in
the location of the rovers – further optimizing the network correction generated by the GNSS
network server.

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
2 Initialization and Configuration
Prior to the first use of the Intuicom RTK Bridge must be activated and configured. A onetime
process of activation is required to setup the integrated CDMA or GSM cellular modem for use
on the chosen carrier’s network. For the device to connect to the current GNSS Network server,
further configuration is required. The unit can store up to four configuration sets called Profiles.
In the field, the current Profile can be changed without the need of a PC. Profiles enable the user
to do things like change NTRIP mountpoints, change GNSS servers, change how locations sent
to the server, etc. At least one Profile must be configured.
2.1
Accessing the Configuration Menu
All configuration and initialization is performed by accessing the configuration menu on the
RTK Bridge with a PC using a terminal emulation program (such as HyperTerminal,
ProComm, TerraTerm, or Minicom), an available serial port, the power/data cable, the RTK
Bridge itself, and the power adapter for the RTK Bridge.
Figure 2-1: Cable Connections for Accessing Configuration Menu
To access the RTK Bridge configuration menu use the following steps:
1. Connect the Lemo end of the power/data cable to the CONFIG port of the RTK
Bridge, and the DB9 connector to an available DB9 COM port on the PC to be used
for configuration. If no COM port is available, a USB-COM port adapter may be
used. Attach the AC power adapter to the power connector on the power/data cable
and plug the AC adapter into an outlet.

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
2. Start HyperTerminal, or another terminal program such as Procomm or TerraTerm,
and configure it to use the same COM port to which the cable was just attached, and
for 19200 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control:
Figure 2-2: Hyperterminal Connection Properties Dialog
3. Power the RTK Bridge unit by pressing and holding the green power button until the
PWR LED turns red. Wait for approximately 30 seconds for the unit to boot, then
type “700” on the terminal screen to invoke the setup menu.
If the unit has not been activated (CDMA) or does not have a SIM inserted
(GSM/GPRS/EDGE), or is not within coverage, it may be necessary to type ‘q’ to
skip the modem’s network registration step.

Embedded Cellular Modem Activation
The activation process involves two steps: contacting your carrier and establishing or adding
a new line to an account, and activating the device after the account/line has been
established. Currently the Intuicom RTK Bridge - Cellular can be ordered with an embedded
modem compatible with either Verizon (CMDA) or any GSM/GPRS/EDGE carrier such as
AT&T or T-Mobile. The activation process differs slightly depending on the carrier. In
either case you will typically need a few pieces of information available from the
configuration menu of the unit.

2.2.1 Verizon Service (US Customers)
Establishing Service
For a Verizon modem, service will need to be established by contacting Verizon Wireless
or your customer service representative:
www.verizonwireless.com/activateyourdevice
Business Sales: 800-899-4249
Government Sales: 800-293-3048
Customer Service: 800-922-0204
Provide the Verizon representative with the Intuicom RTK Bridge – Cellular identifier:
RTKBC-VZ and your unit’s Electronic Serial Number (ESN). The ESN (in HEX form)
can be found in the Embedded Cellular Modem Configuration menu as shown in or on
the label on the side of the device.
The most appropriate data plan for most users to request is “Mobile Broadband Access”.
This plan is a 5GB/month data only plan for a fixed monthly price. Note: used 24x7 with
a 1 Hz RTCM3 correction, an RTK Bridge should use ~ 2GB/month of data.
The representative will provide a 10-digit phone number (MDN) – record this number,
you will be prompted to enter it during the provisioning step. If not provided by the
Verizon representative, request the 10-digit “MIN” number. You will be prompted to
enter both numbers during the modem activation step next.
Activation
After service has been established with Verizon for your unit, a final activation step
completed on the RTK Bridge itself is required. The activation process for the Verizon
modem requires access to the carrier’s wireless network. If you are not located within
coverage, wait to complete the next steps until the unit is located Verizon wireless
network coverage. A Verizon mobile phone can be handy here to help verify coverage.
Attempting to activate the modem outside of Verizon coverage will not damage the unit
and activation can be attempted again later if it fails due to lack of wireless service.
Be sure the device has the modem antenna attached to the connector on the front panel.
From the Embedded Cellular Modem Configuration menu, select the Activation option.
You will be prompted to enter the 10-digit MDN number provided when the service was
established. Next you will be prompted for the MIN number. If the MIN is the same as
the MDN, enter the MDN a second time. Be sure to carefully and accurately enter this
number with no spaces.

2.2.2 GSM/GPRS/EDGE Service
Establishing Service
Contact your selected GSM/GPRS/EDGE provider (AT&T Wireless, or T-Mobile in the
USA) to establish and account and/or add a line of service for this device. Most carriers
have a basic data plan with a 5GB/month data limit. Note: used 24x7 with a 1 Hz
RTCM3 correction, an RTK Bridge should use ~ 2GB/month of data.

The representative may request the type of device or model number – this too can be
found on the Cellular Configuration menu – the model number is “MTSMC-E”. This
model number allows the carrier to verify this modem as one of its approved models.
GSM/GPRS/EDGE service requires the use of a SIM card. Typically your SIM card will
be mailed to you (if service was established in person, you will handed a SIM card). The
SIM card must be inserted in the slot on the back panel of the unit. The SIM card must
be inserted while operating the unit.

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
SIM PIN Configuration
If your SIM card has a PIN number established, the SIM PIN feature can be activated and
the PIN number entered. Use caution in entering the PIN number. The RTK Bridge will
test the PIN after it has been entered to confirm it is correct. The RTK Bridge will
attempt to avoid exceeding the maximum number of PIN attempts if an incorrect PIN has
been entered (for example, the SIM card has been swapped, but the PIN not updated). If
the maximum number of incorrect SIM PIN attempts has been exceeded it will be
necessary to contact the carrier to request a PUK code – in this case the SIM will need to
be removed and inserted into a mobile phone to complete the PUK code entry process.
APN, USERNAME, PASSWORD Configuration
GSM/GPRS/EDGE carriers require configuration of an APN (Access Point Name) and
sometimes a username and password field. These parameters are unique to each carrier
and must be configured before use. The Modem menu allows for configuration of these
parameters. Parameters for AT&T and T-Mobile are:

2.3
Configuration Process
The Intuicom RTK Bridge - Cellular stores four configuration “Profiles” of which one can be
active at a time. A Profile contains the necessary parameters for connecting to a data stream
of RTK correction messages.
Prior to configuration, it is helpful to have the following pieces of data available:
•
Whether the Correction Server (and TCP port) to which the unit will connect is a
RAW TCP port, or an NTRIP caster
•
The IP address and TCP port for the Network Server
•
If the port to which the connection stream is connected supports NTRIP, the
mountpoint will need to be specified.
•
If authentication is required (for either a RAW or NTRIP connection), and if so,
your username and password
•
Based on the type of correction stream to which the unit will be connecting –
determine if a GPS (GGA NMEA) message needs to be sent and if so, should the
message be generated in real-time from the embedded GPS, be supplied from an
external source via the Data port, or should the message relay a fixed, user supplied
position.
•
Whether the embedded Intuicom radio should be enabled, and if so – on which
channel. If a channel needs to be customized, gather the necessary channel
parameters such as Frequency Key, Network ID, Min and Max packet sizes and
whether Repeaters are enabled.
•
The baud rate for the Data port on the front panel of the device – this will be the baud
rate needed to interface to a third party external data radio.
The Intuicom RTK Bridge can store one set of the above parameters for each of four Profiles
– allowing the user to select the configuration set to use in the field without the need for a PC
and terminal program. For example: a user may want to have one Profile connect to a
network correction stream and another Profile connect to a single baseline correction from
the nearest reference station and be able to change between the two in the field. Another
example might be the situation where the device is moved between locations and at each
location there is a different external data radio with a different baud rate – while both
locations may want the same correction stream, the Profiles provide an easy way to change
the baud rate for the external data port.

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
Figure 2-10: Configuration Menu for Profile #1
From the Main Configuration Menu, select Option 1, Profile Configuration. In this menu,
each Profile (1-4) can be selected and/or its parameters configured.
Current Profile – Select Menu Option 1 to change the current Profile. When a given Profile
is selected, its number will be show (1) – (4). Once a Profile is selected, its parameters can
be configured. The parameters from the selected Profile will be used when the unit is
operating. The active profile can also be selected from the front panel of the unit without the
need to use a PC to access the configuration menu. See Operation.
Connection Mode – Select either NTRIP or RAW. In NTRIP mode, the unit will connect to
the IP address and TCP port selected in the following options, and attempt to connect to the
user specified mountpoint. If authentication is required, the user supplied username and
password will be used. In RAW mode, the unit will perform a simply TCP socket connection
to the IP address and TCP port specified in the following options. If authentication is
enabled, the unit will send the $GPUID string at regular intervals populated with the user
supplied username and password.
Server IP – Enter the IP address (x.x.x.x) of the GNSS network server (e.g. Spider, VRS,
etc) to which the unit will attempt a connection. Be carefully to enter the IP address
correctly.
Server Port – Enter the TCP port number on the GNSSnetwork server to connect to.
Typically the TCP port number will have been provided with the server IP address.
Revision 1.4

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
NTRIP Mountpoint – If using NTRIP connection mode, specify the mountpoint (correction
stream) to connect to. Typcially the mountpoint will have been provided along with the IP
address and the TCP port for the GNSS network server. This parameter has no effect if the
connection mode is set to RAW.
Authentication – Specify whether authentication is required for connecting to the GNSS
network server – if so, enter the username and password. Be carefully to enter the username
and password exactly as provided – capitalization typically matters. It can be important to
note that the GNSS server may or may not be configured to allow simultaneous logins with a
given username/password combination – you may need a separate username and password
for each RTK Bridge.
Positioning – When connected to an NTRIP mountpoint, or RAW socket/port, the RTK
Bridge - Cellular can provide a position (GGA NMEA string). A position is often required
for the GNSS network server to be able to generate a stream of network RTK corrections
specific for the user’s location. In most cases the distance between the RTK Bridge’s GPS
antenna and the rover user(s) position is both not great, and not significant in generating the
correction stream. In cases where the rover uses are a significant distance from the RTK
Bridge, a position may be manually entered, and this manually entered position can be sent
instead of the real-time position from the GPS receiver embedded in the RTK Bridge unit.
Specify whether the position to be sent is RealTime (from the embedded GPS) , Static (from
the manually entered position) or Data Port, to forward GGS strings sent to the unit on the
data port. To send no position, select Disabled.

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
Internal Radio – The internal Intuicom 900MHz spread spectrum data radio can be enabled
or disabled. If enabled, the user can configure and specify which channel to use. This radio
is fully compatible with Intuicom 1200 Data Link radios, as well as Intuicom Communicator
II radios. Contact Intuicom for assistance with custom radio configurations for backwards
compatibility to existing radio networks. When the radio is disabled (for example in the case
where only a third party external radio will be used) the radio is actually powered down to
conserve battery life.
The wireless configuration interface is designed to be identical to that of the Intuicom
1200 Data Link, where “channels” are configured with spread spectrum parameters
(Frequency Key, Network ID, Min/Max Packet Sizes, Repeaters) – and a specific
“channel” is selected. If these channels are configured identically to the configuration for
existing 1200 Data Link units, all that is required for communications is making sure
both devices have the same “channel” selected.
Each “Channel” represents a set of spread spectrum configuration parameters. For a
given remote unit to link and receive data, it must have a channel configuration that
matches the configuration of RTK Bridge’s currently selected channel.
Channels Internal Radio “Channels” can be customized by selecting Option 2 from the
Main Configuration Menu.
Figure 2-12: Internal Radio Channel Configuration Menu
Frequency Key (Freq Key) – a number between 0 and 14. Each number represents a
different pseudo-random frequency hopping pattern. For two radios to communicate,
they must have the same Frequency Key.
Revision 1.4

Section 2: Initialization and Configuration
Network ID (Net ID) – a number between 1 and 4000. (note a value of 255 is not
allowed). This arbitrary number uniquely identifies a wireless network. For two radios
to communicate they must have the same Network ID.
Min/Max Packet – two numbers between 1 and 9. The Min and Max packet size values
control latency vs. throughput tradeoff in the wireless network. Like the Frequency Key
and Network ID parameters, for two given radios to communicate, they must have
matching values for their respective Min and Max Packet sizes. It is recommended to
leave the default values of 1 for Min and 9 for Max unless a specific application
requirement dictates otherwise.
Repeaters Enabled – Yes or No. Indicates whether Repeaters or Rover Repeaters might
be used on this channel. If Repeater(s) will be utilized set the value to YES. All radios
in a given network must have the same value for the Repeaters Enabled parameter to be
able to communicate. It is recommended to leave the default value of Yes unless a
specific application dictates otherwise. Contact Intuicom for more information about
configuring repeaters.
Data Port Baud – Set the RS232 baud rate for the Data Port on the front panel of the unit. If
using an external third-party data radio, this baud rate must match the baud of the external
radio. Data is present on this port regardless of the baud rate or whether a connection is
made to another radio. For testing, this port could be connected directly to a GPS Rover.

Connect to Internal GPS – This option allows one to be directly connected to the realtime output of the embedded GPS receiver. This is helpful to determine if the GPS
receiver is tracking – for example when testing different GPS antennas or antenna
locations.
Internal Radio Advanced Configuration - Select this option for access to Advanced
Wireless configuration. The Advanced wireless configuration allows the internal
wireless data radio to be fine tuned for compatibility with a range of Intuicom Wireless
Data Transceiver products, and for specific wireless configuration to address a location

Section 2 for information about how to configure a unit prior to use. Once configured, and
physically setup for operation, the unit will go through a startup routine when powered on,
connect to the GNSS network server, and begin broadcasting corrections.
Figure 3-1: RTK Bridge - Cellular Front Panel
3.1
Basic Steps for Operation
1. Connect Wireless Data Antenna – Connect an appropriate data antenna to the TNC
RADIO connector on the front of the unit (Labeled 9 in Figure 3-1). The antenna could
be an omni-directional antenna or a directional yagi antenna. Typically there is a
segment of cable between the unit and the antenna. Suggested cable types include Times
Microwave LMR240 and LMR400 with TNC and N-Type connectors. Contact Intuicom
for more information about antennas and cabling. Position the antenna to provide the
best coverage for your application. In general, antenna height makes a significant
difference in range and performance. “Height is everything.”
2. Connect GPS Antenna – If the configuration utilizes the embedded GPS to obtain a
correction stream, be sure to attach the included L1 GPS antenna to the TNC connector
on the front panel (Labeled 8 in Figure 3-1) and position the antenna such that it has good
visibility to the sky.
3. Connect Modem (Cellular) Antenna – Connect the appropriate Cellular antenna to the
Modem antenna connector on the front panel (Labeled 7 in Figure 3-1). This antenna
will be the included “duck” antenna or an optional directional panel antenna. If the unit
is located in weak wireless coverage, a directional panel antenna may be necessary to
successfully connect to the network. See Cellular Modem Antenna Aiming Mode in
Section 3.5.

Section 3: Operation
4. Connect to Data Port for copy of correction stream (optional) – If copies of the
correction are to be broadcast using an external third-party base radio, connect the
included Power/Data cable can be used. A null modem or gender changer may be
required. Intuicom manufactures dedicated cables for connections to some external
radios, eliminating the need to connect DB9 ends together. It is also possible to connect
directly to an RTK Rover GPS for testing.
5. Connect Power – Power can be applied to either the Config or the Data port but not both
– be sure power is only being applied to one port. Power is applied using the power only
cable, the power pigtail on the power/data cable, or the power pigtail from one of the
RTK Bridge to external radio cables. CAUTION: Only apply power from one source!
Connect 10-24 VDC power to the front panel using the included power adapter or using
the optional power pigtail. Power could be supplied from an AC adapter, a battery or a
car cigarette lighter adapter.

Startup Sequence
Once the unit is properly configured and physically setup it goes through a startup sequence
when power is attached and power button pressed.
1. The PWR LED on the front panel should immediately light RED (If the Profile
Button is held during power up (for about 20 seconds) all Profile (1-4) LEDs will
flash and the unit will enter Antenna Aiming Mode).
2. The currently active profile LED (1-4) will blink – press the Profile button to change
the active Profile at this point. If the Profile is changed, the unit will re-start with the
new Profile.
3. The Cellular signal is sampled – and the SIG light will indicate the current Cellular
signal strength (Solid RED, Flashing RED, or OFF).
4. Assuming the signal strength is sufficient, the embedded cellular modem will registr
with the carrier’s network and the unit will connect to the Internet, a successful
connection is indicated by the MDM light turning RED.
5. The unit will attempt to connect to the Server IP and Port number specified in the
profile, if this connection is successful, the SVR LED will turn RED.
6. If in NTRIP mode, the unit will attempt to connect to the configured mountpoint
using the configured username and password. If this failed, the SVR LED will turn
off.
7. If the unit is configured to send its Real-Time, or Static GPS message, it will do so
within 10 seconds. The GPS LED will indicate if the internal GPS is tracking, or if a
Static GPS message is being sent.
8. The TXD LED will begin to blink as corrections are received and broadcast out the
internal data radio and/or the Data port on the front panel. Operation will continue
until interrupted by power off, or loss of cellular signal.

Config Port Status Display/Messages
Current operation status can be monitored by connecting to the Config Port on the front panel
using the Data/Power cable and a PC with a terminal application such as HyperTerminal.
Connect to the Config Port and configure the terminal application as explained in Section 2 –
Accessing the Configuration Menu. When the unit is powered up, it will begin operation as
explained in Section 3.2 – Startup Sequence. The current status of the unit is output as
ASCII text on Config Port. A number of different possible messages may appear as they
become applicable.
Status Messages include:
•
Status of the Cellular Modem connection to the Internet.
•
Status of the TCP socket connection to the server (or NTRIP Caster).
•
Status of the GPS Positional Messages – whether or not they are being sent – and if
so, the actual message.
•

Antenna Aiming / Cellular Signal Strength Mode
The RTK Bridge - Cellular has a special mode useful when utilizing a directional antenna for
the embedded Cellular modem. A directional antenna is most useful when operating in an
area of weak cellular coverage. The Antenna aiming mode allows the user to see signal
strength feedback from the front panel of the unit while aiming the directional antenna. Once
the signal strength is peaked, the direction antenna can be secured in place.
To enter Antenna Aiming Mode, be sure a directional cellular antenna is attached (often an
outdoor panel antenna – see accessories). Connect power to the unit using the power/data
cable or the power only cable. While holding the blue profile button, power on the unit and
continue holding the profile button until all four profile indicator LEDs (labeled 1-4) flash at
the same time. Release the profile button – the unit is now in Antenna Aiming Mode and
will continue in the mode until the unit is powered down.
In Antenna Aiming Mode, the profile indicator LEDs (labeled 1-4 on the front panel) will
form a vertical bar graph indicating relative signal strength. When none of the LEDs are
illuminated, it indicates a weak or non-existent signal, while four lit LEDs indicates a very
strong signal.
Rotate the directional antenna while watching the signal strength indication. Identify the
antenna orientation that results in the strongest indicated signal and secure the antenna in that
position. Exit the Antenna Aiming Mode by powering down the unit (press and hold the
green power button until the PWR LED goes out).

3.6
Changing Profiles
The active Profile can be changed in the field without the use of a PC. At least one Profile
must be configured for operation. It is suggested to configure the Profiles in numerical order
– starting with Profile 1.
Profiles are changed in the field by pressing the blue Profile button on the front panel at the
appropriate time during the boot up process. To change Profiles, power on the unit and wait
for the currently active profile LED to flash (the profile LEDs are in a vertical column
labeled 1-4 on the front panel). Immediately upon seeing the currently active Profile LED
flash, press the blue profile button – this will result in incrementing the active profile – and
the change will be displayed by the lit Profile LED advancing. Continue to press and release
the blue Profile button until the desired Profile is selected. The unit will timeout waiting for
further changes, then reboot and re-configure for the newly selected active Profile.
The selected active Profile must have been properly configured before being selected. For
information about how to configure the parameters for each individual Profile, see Section
2.3.
Figure 3-8: Changing the active profile on the front panel
Example: A user has two Profiles configured. Each profile is basically the same with
regard to the GNSS network server, and login credentials – the Profiles differ in the
NTRIP mountpoint names. The user wants to be able to switch from an RTCM 3
correction to a Leica message from a specific reference station. The user can change the
RTK Bridge to use the different profile, and change the rover configuration to accept the
different correction message type.

3.7
Optimizing Wireless Performance
Range performance of the Intuicom 900MHz Spread Spectrum Wireless Data Radio network
can be greatly improved by optimizing the radio location and antenna setup. Height is
everything. If the RTK Bridge and antenna setup can be located at a high-point that
improves line of sight between its antenna and rover units, the performance can be greatly
improved. It may even be desirable to locate the unit farther away, but at a higher location.
Key factors affecting wireless performance:
1) Location and height – In general locating the unit as high as possible and/or using a mast
for the broadcast antenna can greatly improve wireless performance.
Revision 1.4
34
© 2009 Intuicom, Inc.
Section 3: Operation
2) Antenna type and proper installation and aiming if applicable – Unless the users are
generally in close proximity to the unit – use of a high gain antenna is desirable. High
gain antennas include a 5 dBi omni-directional antenna and a 10 dBi yagi directional
antenna. For the broadcast radio, if the area to be covered is in a single direction from the
unit, it may be desirable to use a directional antenna to concentrate the antenna gain in
the direction of the user(s).
For the embedded Cellular modem, it may not be adequate to use the included duck
antenna. A higher gain 7 dBi omni-directional antenna as well as a 12 dBi directional
panel antenna is available.
3) Coaxial cable length and type – Keep antenna cables as short as possible. Avoid using
adapters. Use coax that has lower loss for high frequencies – such as Times Microwave
LMR240. Avoid using RG-58 cable.
4) Rover antenna type and condition – confirm that the rover users are using the correct
antenna. Any additional height that can be added to the rover antenna is useful – such as
a backpack with a short pole and adapter for the duck antenna.

Connecting to Third-Party Radio
In addition to broadcasting RTK correction messages via the internal Intuicom 900MHz
Spread Spectrum Data Radio (if installed) – the correction messages are available via RS232
on the DATA port on the front panel of the unit and a cable can be used to connect to any
third party radio that accepts data via RS232.
To connect to an external third-party radio:
1. Configure the baud rate of the DATA port on the RTK Bridge to match the baud rate
of the third-party radio.
2. Connect the included Data/Power cable to the Data port on the front of the unit.
3. Connect power to the Data Power cable – being sure that power is only connected to
the unit at one point. Alternatively power could be applied using a different cable on
the Config port – but not both ports simultaneously.
4. Connect the DB9 end of the Data/Power cable to the data cable coming from the
third-party radio. This may require a null modem adapter, and/or a 25 to 9 pin serial
adapter.
5. Power up both units and confirm reception of corrections at rover radios receiving
from the third-party base radio.
