Just a quick recommendation for all FG users....
For a total investment of about $70 you can add a compact flash gps card for WAAS-enabled positioning directly from your data collector.
It's perfect for reconnaissance or trying to relocate monuments, etc. without lugging around your whole rover rig or setting up a base station.
The CF card gps uses a NEMA output, which can be configured by FG.
I purchased Globalsat BC-337 recievers, which on inital testing generates coordinates at about 1.5-2 m RMS with a WAAS message.
You'll probably also have to buy an extended cap for you data collector to keep everything protected. That will run about $100 for Trimble/TDS products.
