Just sent this to in response to an off list response from a member but I wanted to share with the group.
I'm now seeing at least 8 satellites with just the tiny patch antenna sitting out on a chair on my deck (not connected to my main time system antenna out in the back yard)
Success! Thanks to all for the help.
> Hi Francis,
> Well, I got home tonight and connected up the receiver to the PC and opened Lady Heather. No com port detected. Closed and opened Trimble Tboltmon. Nothing. Hyperterminal. Nothing.
> I then downloaded WinOncore12 and went through receiver setup. It did a self diagnosis and passed. I unplugged the antenna and reran and it said low antenna current. So it must be talking.
> I'm now in signal quality screen and seeing satellites!
> The receiver must have been in some weird state and needed to be set up again. I'll leave for a while then try Lady Heather again just to see what will happen.
> For some reason tonight, now the RX LED isn't on (it comes on if I unplug the serial connector from the laptop) but now the TX is flashing.
> Thanks for the help and encouragement.
