Leica GLONASS only Leap Second Notification, Jan. 1st, 2017

This issue affects only GLONASS-enabled receivers. GLONASS tracking will be temporarily interrupted on receivers operating during the introduction of the leap second on December 31st, 2016. GPS tracking will not be impacted, and receivers will continue to compute a position using the GPS constellation. OEM6 receivers may report a solution integrity warning during this period. GLONASS tracking will return to normal once a new GPS almanac is automatically downloaded from the satellites by the receiver. Receivers powered-up after the introduction of the leap second that do not have a current almanac will also temporarily have difficulty tracking GLONASS satellites. An almanac will not be available on start-up if the receiver has not been used in 90 days or if the  almanac has been cleared manually by the user. GPS tracking will not be impacted, and receivers will continue to compute a position using the GPS  constellation. OEM6 receivers may report a solution integrity warning during this period. GLONASS tracking will return to normal once a new GPS almanac is  automatically downloaded from the satellites by the receiver.

ATTENTION: GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS

ATTENTION: GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS

Earth is entering a stream of high-speed solar wind, and this is causing G1-class geomagnetic storms on February 16th. This is not the CME we have been waiting for since Valentine’s Day. Instead, the solar wind is flowing from a coronal hole on the sun. Visit www.spaceweather.com for photos and more information.

This generally means GPS RTK will not fix as quickly or render as high precision. Spend more time on each point to improve precision.

All care is being given to assure that SmartNet North America GNSS infrastructure is not adversely affected by this introduction, but similar care should be taken by all SmartNet North America users on their GNSS rovers as well.
