Users that need to change the frequency manually (not using omnistarauto setting) can change the frequency by using the following:


You can verify the frequency change using the LOG LBANDSTAT command.  The second line of the log should show the frequency.  Use the SAVECONFIG command to save the setting to the NovAtel GPS receiver.
