A boat racing sponsor purchased an Hemisphere MBX-4 Beacon receiver (P/N 940-2035-000). After receiving their order, the customer realized that they would be better off with Hemisphere R110 (P/N 940-2035-000) and 20 Hz data output. They exchanged the MBX-4 for the R110. If one only needs Beacon, the MBX-4 will do the job. But for $400 more one can get SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS) and Beacon corrections with 20 Hz data rate. The MBX-4 output rate is 10 Hz.
The R100 series have different configuration options:
R100 with GPS and SBAS
R110 with GPS, SBAS, and Beacon
R120 with GPS, SBAS, and OmniSTAR
R130 with GPS, SBAS, Beacon, and OmniSTAR
