[App_rpt-users] Voter Question

For ACID to do voting you NEED at least 2 RTCMs and 2 GPS receivers and one
computer running ACID.  The RTCMs send RX audio RSSI and GPS timing data
back to computer which compares the RSSI levels and picks the best one and
sends it to the transmitter.

I think you are missing what i am getting at.  He will NOT be using rtcm at
all.  That is why I ask about setting up a computer running acid as the
receive site.  I need to know what to configure on the pc since we aren't
using an rtcm.  I doubt the pc will know what the server ants without
configuring something on it.

between a URI and a RTCM set up is minimal. Only one line in rpt.conf needs
to be changed.  One file, voter.conf is added to the ACID config. That's the
entire difference. There is an example voter.conf here:
http://ohnosec.org/drupal/node/180. Complete RTCM documentation is available
from the micro-node site here:

the voter works in the ACID distro.  I am trying to understand a few thing
in ACID to help a friend.  I have seen the rtcm that will act as a voting
interface as well as the voting card.  Can a regular acid install on a
computer be used as a voter as well?  If so is their any documentation for
this?  I know a GPS could be connected up to the computer and a radio with
true discriminator audio should do the job.  I am just curious if the
computer with the ACID distro can also be used as a voter with the right
configuration.
