HI Michael,This is not to check your site , This is to check your equipment .Find some  where were you can set up a triangle peg station this will mean some where in large open field as flat as you can find set controls far, but not to far that the angles will degrade because of the distance or other things like heat waves. (early morning best), shoot the distance from point to point with tri brackets increase your prism if you like.then turn all the angles .You can do that first if you like.Before the heat waves get to bad. Then check your distances to see if they fit the angles. If they do  not something is out on your Total Station.Once you have mathematically close this triangle, the gun should be shooting the correct distance with the angles in this triangle,Say you get the closure to, 1 in 20,000.00 or 1 in 30 or 40,000.00 , or higher, then you know it is correct.Wrong setting in the gun can affect this data. so they will also show up. Then you can check your GPS  any time you need to. this will also tell you if your total stations are in peg. If you can make these good mont.'s then you will always have a check station when you need to check if any of your equipment, is correct or not. This can be done on regular intervals . This is the angle , dist, triangle peg method .,Also on any construction site or any high precision job  it is a good rule to not assume any method is correct if you shoot with one ,check it with the other.  Also the side, angle,side method is also good to use on total station, set three points in a triangle ocpt.1 bs 2 fs 3 solve this side ,angle , side  then shoot the dist from 2 to 3 it should match the calculated distance, if not something is wrong

Have a good day Sir.
