Boundary and Topographic Gurus

Boundary and Topo are a rite of passage for professional land surveyors and most of our LSU members have experience in this niche. However, there are some who have had SO much experience that one might call them a "Guru." Are YOU a guru?

Land Surveying Ethics

Land Surveying Ethics is a discussion forum for issues involving ethics in the practice of Land Surveying.  Every Land Surveyor has faced or will face an ethical problem or concern.  This is where we air it out and compare notes.  What is or is not ethical is sometimes a matter of law, sometimes a matter of opinion, but always a matter of morality.See More

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
