I have not found info that really makes the case that MSM7 is better in

For F9P, $100-class antenna and RTK where the reference receivers are in
the 25 km range, vs 500m, I think it is.  People quote theoretical
accuracies all the time, and I'm talking about actually making repeat
measurements on a real mark with some tree cover.  At this degree of
accuracy you need to be careful about leveling; I was hand-holding a
prism pole with a bubble level.

I would be very interested to see similar data from others, doing:

  establish some point that you can return to

  measure it with RTK (and a prism pole or tripod) once, with a 30s
  average, and compute the mean with qgis etc.
  several days later, do it again, wait a few more days, do it a third

  talk about the extreme spread of the 3 measurements, longest side of
  the triangle.  Explain the RTK reference source, leveling method, and
