"Bill, I think you got it... At some point you have to stop "chasing the bubble" as we call it.  If these two points were property corners on a current ALTA survey, both would be valid with your raw data, let alone adjusted and…"

"Bill, Just putting this out here, did you adjust your optical distance for your scale factor?  Since the two OPUS points are so close ( 350 feet and not 3500 feet) I'd pick the scale factor from the point with better results. Also, if you…"

"I run 20 min. statics all the time. Usually anywhere from 4-6 surrounding a job site. I have similar issues (once with similar error) but over the years just have expected with 20 min sessions your going to get a bad static from time to time. 1/10…"

OPUS collection interval error

I'm brand new to post processing using OPUS or any other post processing method.  A couple of days ago I collected 5 points, each for 20 minutes and uploaded them to OPUS.  All point were collected with the same setting on my data collector.  Four of the points came back with good results.  One of the points didn't process and I received the following error from OPUSThe file Base_3 seems to have a collection interval of 14 seconds!brThe collection interval must be 1,2,3,5,10,15 or 30 seconds to…See More

"Bill, My Bad, I missed the "one out of five" part.  I'd suggest the you look for obstructions that might be interfering with this point.  Also, if its an important point, try running a 30 minute session.  While I have…"

"TEQC is software onlione that is free to download and should convert your files to RINEX format.  You can submit the RINEX files to OPUS just like your TPS files. https://www.unavco.org/software/data-processing/teqc/teqc.html I hope it helps…"
