This stuff is like a whole new language and explaining it in many ways can be useful.
RTCM is the language. It contains the correction information for the correction method RTK.
NTRIP is the method used to transmit the information. (Over the Internet)
RTK2GO is a free service where one can send base station correction data (RTCM)
RTK2GO is a free service where one can get RTK Correction data (RTCM via NTRIP) for one's Rover (Tractor)
So why would one send correction data (RTCM) to RTK2GO and then get it via NTRIP?
I don't have a static IP for my internet. In other words My address on the internet changes and I don't control it. MY internet provider wants an extra $100/month for an address that doesn't change. So by sending the data to RTK2GO I always know where to get that data. (RTCM via NTRIP)
