Log bookNEWL

[EUREFmail-09738] - 2019-02-13 (14/02/2019)

NEWL (Newlyn, Great Britain) Trimble NetR9 receiver has been updated from 5.01 to 5.37 on 2019-02-18 and a site log has been submitted to EUREF.
However, tracking problems that started on 2018 344 still persist until a site visit can be made to identify the cause of these problems.

[EUREFmail-7019] - 2013-06-25 (25/06/2013)

Data from our NEWL station has been unavailable for some time (since 2012-12-25) due to a failed receiver/antenna and a lack of funding to replace these.

I am pleased to announce that through some additional funding for our British Isles continuous GNSS Facility (BIGF) provided by our Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) we have now been able to procure some new equipment, which was installed on 2013-05-21.
