i understand that some do not need the accuracy of RTK.
as for your observations, the calibration you speak of is basically terrain compensation. if you made the pass and then turned back immediately on that pass you likely would not see any error even on waas. this really has little to do with what we are talking about when we speak of pass to pass repeatability. one thing that is important to know, your monitor never knows it is off. even on waas it is always very confident it is exactly where you need it to be. this is because it has no correction source to tell it any different.
sometimes you may hear people say they parked the tractor for an hour and when they came back it was off a foot. in those circumstances the monitor thought the whole time it was right on the mark due to the information it was provided, and i guess in that sense it was. this is why we use ground reference stations to correct that satellite data and stay on our mark.
