RTK from John Deere provides highly accurate, repeatable corrections from global positioning system (GPS) to John Deere's suite of precision ag applications. RTK utilizes a local, ground-based reference station that transmits the high-accuracy corrections to a StarFire receiver on a machine via RTK Radios.

StarFire RTK accuracy depends on the distance between the base station and the machine. The shorter the distance, the more accurate the system will be. In general, the accuracy of StarFire RTK is described below.

  • +/- 2.5-cm (1-in.) horizontal pass-to-pass, 95 percent of the time, 20 km (12 mile) baseline
  • +/- 5-cm (2-in.) vertical pass-to-pass, 95 percent of the time, 2 km (1 mile) baseline
  • Up to 20 km (12 miles) line of sight
  • Measured at the receiver every 15 minutes

Reduce radio interference with John Deere RTK Radio 450

The John Deere RTK Radio 450 requires a license for a dedicated frequency. While a license has to be paid for, the user owns that specific frequency. Unlike the John Deere RTK Radio 900 frequencies, wireless providers or anyone else cannot use that frequency, thus eliminating signal jamming.

The following is a simple way to think about the difference between a John Deere RTK Radio 900 and RTK Radio 450:

  • The John Deere RTK Radio 900 uses a frequency band that is like an interstate: it is free and open to the public. If only a few people are using the interstate, it moves fast; however, when everyone uses it at the same time, there is a traffic jam and it moves slowly. Conversely, the John Deere RTK Radio 450 is a private road.

Broaden RTK availability with repeaters

RTK repeaters are radios that can be used to improve base station signal coverage around obstacles, such as trees or rolling terrain. The purpose of the RTK Repeater is to receive the correction signal coming from the base station and then transmit that correction signal.

More than one repeater can be used with one base station, but the repeater cannot receive signal from each other in a daisy-chain configuration. In order to operate, a repeater must be connected to a 12-V power source.

A repeater is the same as the radio that is on a machine or base station receiver.

A repeater consists of the following:

  • John Deere RTK Radio 900 or 450
  • Power harness and bracket

Dealer-owned RTK network benefits producers

Dealers across Australia and New Zealand have set up a robust RTK network.

  • Producers have a lower investment cost because the dealer purchases and is responsible for base station upkeep.
  • Dealer networks cover more area with the RTK signal, giving many producers access to RTK on all of their grounds.
  • RTK network is owned, maintained, and supported by a local, certified John Deere dealer.

Contact a local John Deere dealer to inquire about RTK network coverage.
