"Hi Billy, nice to hear from you again. Yes I had the right settings: baud rate at 2400, even parity, and I'm pretty sure that I had checked that both sides were com. and instrument enabled. I'm using a Leica…"

" Hi Bernie, hope your doing well.  Can you have the cable tested,and also make sure it is a TDS cable and not a SMI. It maybe just a bad cable.  Have you tried using setting, New Gun,did you check the Baud rate and Parity to see if…"

Leica TC1010 data colleciton using TDS

I’ve been trying to set up an older Leica-Wild TC1010 for a back-up unit. Though the optics and total station functions are very good, I have not had any luck in downloading data. These units could use either a rec module or data cable to collect data. Establishing successful connection via the data cable and TDS software to either an HP48 or Ranger  have been spotty at best (just a beep or two; but no data or error message).The TDS software lists the TC1000 units as supported and I am now at a…See More

Bernie J. Marocco replied to Aminu Abdul's discussion Weark Signal Error 1292 in Leica TPS 407
"I agree with Maurice. You'll  need to send it in to a Leica dealer for service. 'Weak signal; error code 1292' indicates either no target or a Cal motor problem. I recently had a similar issue with my TPS800 series. It may…"

Bernie J. Marocco replied to William H. Burling's discussion Is Textbook example of doing a declination correct?
"For me it always helps to use visuals; so I got out a full circle, 360 degree, see-through protractor. I think we all agree that the True azimuth in 1880 was 276 - 15. It helps to lay it out on a pad of paper and mark the fixed…"

Surveyor Bio:
My early background in Surveying began in the 70's after completing a BA in English and then an Assoc. Degree in Land Surveying. My first land surveying work was very rewarding and interesting.It primarily involved extensive title search and retracing boundary evidence of large land tracks in the southern Adirondacks. These were still the days of theodolite and chain measurements for the most part. Then 2 years in the Peace Corps as an ag. extension agent in Sierra Leone doing primarily rice paddy development and Survey/Mapping support for paddy irrigation systems. After Peace Corps I went out to the west coast (CA)to work for the US Forest Service as a Transportation Planner, Logging Systems Specialist, wildland fire fighter, and eventually back into Cadastral Surveying with the USFS and BLM. My work as Party Chief of a Cadastral Survey crew involved retracing suspect and/or fraudulent 1880's GLO surveys in remote Northern CA mountains. After 35 years with the USFS, I'm now back East(PA) winding down my FS career and planning/building my next career as a private practice Licensed Professional Surveyor.

Hey, Bennie is that a Honda Trail 50, sure looks like one.I loved mine had to move on to three and four wheelers. yamaha made a bw  big wheel that was a bike with All terrain  tires they only made them 2 years, i love mine in the woods it was a step to make a 2 wheel machine approved for forrest trails,because of low pressure tires, i had a time getting mine approved. No it must have 3 or 4 wheels was all i heard. The head Ranger finally gave in an issued me a permit.

YEP, MY SYSTEMS  ARE BETTER THAN WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO DAY.    YOU CAN NOT FIND ANY OF THESE YOUNG GUYS WHO EVEN OWN A CALCULATOR, THEY WANT TO DO EVERYTHING ON COMPUTERS, AND WHATS UP WITH NOT USING A DATA COLLECTOR, NO WAY A TOTAL STATION FASTER, THEY DO NOT WANT TO LEARN ANY MATH, HOW ARE THEY TAKEN A TEST I TRIED TO GET THEM INTERESTED IN EMULATORS  NO LUCK,  TDS STILL MAKES GOOD STUFF YOU KNOW THERE PART OF TRIMBLE NOW. I AM LEARNING THE HP PRIME PROGRAMMING NOW I THINK IT'S REAL COOL. DID YOU SEE ALL THE PROGRAMS I GAVE ON THE HP 35,  IT IS USE MORE THAN ANY OTHER CALCULATOR TO TAKE A SURVEY EXAM. I ALSO SHOWED HOW TO USE IT MANUALLY  TO SURVEY WITH AND HOW TO USE LINEAR REGRESSION ON IT, AND TO USE INDIRECTLY ADRESSING  MEMORY. WHAT OTHER CALCULATOR CAN DO ALL OF THIS. AND WHY NO COLLECTORS,   ME A DATA COLLECTOR ANY DAY . THANKS YOUR INTEREST BENNIE   PS  I DID SOME WORK WITH THE FORREST SERVICE TOO. AND IT SHOWED IN MY TREE SURVEYS. THEY CALLED ME TREE MAN, GOOD TO MET YOU.
