About RTKFnet

Founded by a group of farmers in South Cambridgeshire who joined together to make a robust and affordable GPS RTK network.

What does RTKFnet do?

Our principal ideals were to create one of the first RTK networks that was cost effective and most importantly did not limit the individual farmer to small areas of coverage; ensuring that as far as is possible every field has reliable coverage the whole time. This was originally achieved using a network of radio base stations through out East Anglia.

As RTKF Net grew it was clear that we needed to embrace new technologies, it was also clear that there was a need for affordable RTK coverage across the rest of England. To achieve this we have installed a network of base stations that deliver the signal via the internet and SIM cards to any make of GPS equipment. This system perfectly compliments the radio network and allows us to provide a more efficient service with remote support handling and monitoring.

Innovative

We’re at the forefront of RTK technology and we continually look to the future.

Specialist

We’re an RTK network first, owned by farmers, focussed on delivering RTK provisions.

Collaboration

We work together, as a team, with businesses and across the industries.

Inclusive

We’re more than a signal, growing together and serving all customers.

RTK (Real Time Kinematic)

RTK (Real Time Kinematic) is the use of fixed position base stations to enhance the accuracy of GPS systems by transmitting signals that correct positioning errors caused by the Earth’s atmosphere.

Fixed RTK base stations, as the name suggests, have a permanent position which never changes. This position is transmitted to the Tractor which can then correct its own position, which constantly varies, and align it to the base station. Therefore creating the most accurate position.
