I have been surveying for 23 years. I became a licensed surveyor in 2008. I have performed surveys in 22 states, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Spain, Italy, Sicily and the Azores. My current company specializes in GPS Surveying/Mapping, Geodetic Control Surveys, Topo, boundary, GIS mapping. Also during my career I worked as a Technical Support Engineer for Leica Geosystems before the market went to crap and I came back to the real world. I did enjoy my stay with Leica and met a lot of great people.

Hi Brian, I heard some good words about you from the other survey group. I purchase aSR9500,CR344 & antenna. As it is, CR344 is faulty (see my post under Leica group here). I could probably hang around until one turns up at ebay. Meanwhile I want to check and verify that the SR9500 works. (AT302 works, I hooked it to SR530). How do you suggest I go about verifying sr9500? Would third party controller work? Which one? Or how about some kind of utility software that can communicate via serial cable with the unit? If the SR9500 works, I would acquire another CR344, if both are faulty then probably sell them as parts..Best regards and TIA..Rahimi
