Change of Satellite Beam for Trimble RTX Services and Trimble xFill


In order to continue providing exceptional quality of service, on October 25th, 2016, the RTXEA satellite beam stopped broadcasting Trimble RTX™ corrections, affecting the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions.  Trimble RTX corrections for these regions will be available on the satellite beam RTXAE.


The new RTXAE beam is currently active on 1539.8125 MHz, 2400 baud.


RTXEA stopped broadcasting on 1539.9525 MHz, 600 baud as of October 25th 2016.


Customers, who have changed their receiver settings in December 2015 from satellite beam RTXEU to the new beam RTXAE, are already receiving corrections using the new satellite beam RTXAE.

On the 'Receiver Instructions' tab, select the make and model of your GPS receiver for detailed instructions on how to change the device settings.
