EGNOS satellite changed

How do you do it for NH intellisteer ?
A bit more complicated....


On the Display go to Diagnostics > RDI

Then:
1. Press right arrow until you see “Configurations”
2. Press down arrow once
3. Press right arrow until you see “DGPS Config”
4. Press down arrow until you see SBAS Sats
5. Press right arrow twice. You’ll see a cursor flashing.
6. Press down arrow until you see “Disabled”
7. Press left arrow once
8. Press up until you see PRN136
9. Press right arrow once
10. Press up until you see “Heed Health”
11. Press the Enter button
12. Press ESC button to get back to Home screen. On second line of RDI screen you should see 136 and you should have DGPS fix after 5-10 minutes.

If you get lost then press the ESC button multiple times to get back to the first screen and try again.
If you still get lost then contact your dealer.

Thanks will do that in the morning !

Glad it’s not just our 750 that’s not been picking up egnos then, Shame the barsteward thing won’t pick up RTX anymore either:mad:

Re subscribed just before we started maize drilling, think we are having somone out to look at it, boss didnt realise we’ve been running it on egnos for a good while now, the other gps system seems to be working fine now apparently not used it myself yet but the boys are getting on great with it
 
Does, anyone know when Egnos will be functional?
EGNOS is always functional. There’s always at least 2 satellites pushing out the correction. You just need to be receiving the service from the right bird.

Issues arise because folks hard code a particular PRN number (e.g. PRN120) into their SBAS settings on their receiver rather than ‘AUTO’ allowing the receiver to select from the strongest signal.

As it is the Inmarsat satellite that was broadcasting the PRN120 signal is now 22 years old. It’s way beyond its original expected lifetime of 13 years, so is due to be retired.

The panicked, poorly written and incorrect email above from AS Comms describes the latest change as a “problem”. The reality is that this was a planned change and was well publicised. I’m just a schmuck user and got the email 10 days ago. You’d expect the professionals would at least expect there could be some disruption.

It sounds like it's defaulted to Egnos and you haven't noticed. Which is what happened to our drilling tractor a couple of years ago: couldn't work out why we had wide gaps in the OSR, until we looked at the 'correction source' and twigged it wasn't set to RTX, doh...

IIRC, it was immediately after renewal of a lapsed RTX subscription (defaulted to Egnos), and it turns out that inputing the new RTX unlock codes does NOT automatically set the unit to RTX, it will continue to use Egnos until you manually set it to RTX.

Should still be live 12mts lasts for the other one will just be a trimble receiver not sure what system it looked a good system when it could do everything it just got released to soon

How to mitigate heat stress in cattle

  • 57
  • 0


Written by John Swire

With temperatures forecast to rise above 25°C, cattle producers should be prepared to mitigate the negative effects of heat stress on their beef and dairy animals.

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
