In recent years, the number of RTK correction signal networks has grown in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and southern Minnesota. Even in less-well-served geographies flanking this area, multiple RTK network options are becoming the status quo.
MyWay RTK expands
MyWay RTK announced plans to build its first statewide network in Illinois a year ago. After putting that network in place by the 2011 planting season, it continues to grow, with small networks now established in Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska and Michigan, as well as other states outside the Midwest.
“Our goal is to be nationwide in as short a time frame as possible,” says Andy Hill, MyWay RTK manager. “We want to have seamless coverage across the farming region of the U.S.”
Aggressive expansion plans are realistic, Hill says, based on growing interest from independent entities that partner with MyWay to set up RTK base stations and share revenues with MyWay. Hill expects networks in Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas to expand considerably in 2012. Growth in other states is expected as well.
