I believe in this scenario you could run a 6000 receiver because the 2600 works with the 6000.

Don't quote me on that though, I'd definitely ask someone else or find a 6000 to try.

With a 3000 you'd guaranteed be fine, we used to run a 3000 on our 4710 with a 2630.

I recently bought a new 8345RT tractor and looked at guidance options. I moved an RTK activation over to a new 6000 receiver and ran through the 4600 display. Have run the 6000 with 2630s and its fine. The 6000 is very accurate with RTK is doesn't seem to go to extend ever compared to the 3000 and this is up to 22km from our base station.

Quite different to the sf 6000 I regularly use. Spends most of its time on rtk x at only 9 km from the base station. Quite poor really with lines not matching up quite often. Not good enough when planting potatoes. Dealer is useless with no idea how to fix, nor do they want to.

Thats a tower issue with Line of Sight, not a receiver issure. I know a couple potato producers that got rid of RTK and just run SF3 because your not tied to a tower anymore.

Are you 900hz or 450hz rtk radio? 450 is the newer technology but doesnít have near the range

As a farmer, you learn quick: ďYou donít get anything that you donít work hard forĒ

Thatís likely cuz your country is too flat, ha ha.
My main RTK tower is actually on the second hill of Three Hills.

I bought a 6000 last fall but installed my existing RTK transmitter, itís likely 12+ years old so itís likely 900hz. Think thatís what the dealer did.
I have read a range of 180 m to 42 km, an obvious hill to hill reading.

Im running the old radio that's 8 years old. Our base is 30 metres 100 feet high with the receiver mounted on railway line driven into the ground away from anything that will shade it. Its worked perfectly for over 14 years.

450 MHz actually has better range and it goes through trees/buildings/other stuff way better than 900 MHz .

Problem with 450 MHz is you need a license to use it.

450 MHz. This is the longer range. 900 nowhere near as far.
