[EUREFmail-9379] - 2018-04-26 (15/05/2018)

Yesterday (2018-04-25) at station BORJ 14268M002 we changed the
antenna (LEIAR25.R3 to LEIAR25.R4) and the firmware of the receiver.
2 antenna calibration sets are available: ROBOTER and CHAMBER.
The ATX Files were sent to EPN CB.

Author: Gunter Liebsch (BKG). BORJ becomes part of the EPN network and has replaced the former station BORK. The new GNSS station is about 7km away from the old one and therefore also from the tide gauge "Borkum-Fischerbalje". There is another tide gauge very close (about 200m) to BORJ, the tide gauge "Borkum-Suedstrand". The tide gauge “Borkum-Suedstrand” is located offshore on a tower and has no fixed connection to the island. On the web site:

we provide some information about our GNSS station Borkum (BORJ).
