History of the stationILDX

Des travaux ont été effectués sur le faîte où se trouve l'antenne.
- 2012-02-08 installation de l'antenne
- Début Fevrier 2013, à l'issue des travaux de couverture du local du club nautique, l'antenne se retrouve entourée de béton.
- Au 2013-02-20, l'antenne est dégagée du béton et adopte sa position définitive.

2021-11-04 (23/05/2022)

V.Kerebel, A.Mussa and J. Khan from the LIENSs made a test of 2 radars Vega configuration. Each one with a different configuration to have a comparison.
In the same time, the SHOM changed his tide gauge receiver for a more recent one. This work has been done by an engineer from Campbell enterprise.
Also, he installed a meteorological sensor and a camera on the building of tide gauge receiver.

2015-04-01 (23/05/2022)

Absolute gravimetric measurements made on the gravimetry marker of the tourism office by D.Rouxel et S.Lucas of the SHOM.
Material: Microg-Lacoste A10.

2015-08-17 (23/05/2022)

Absolute gravimetric measurements made on the gravimetry marker of the tourism office by Nicolas Le Moigne and Michaël Bonno from Montpellier (UMR 5243) during the night. Material: FG5. The following days, they performed similar measurements to La Pallice (at La Rochelle).

2021-09-16 (23/05/2022)

V. Kerebel and T. Guyot. have participated to the cleaning of the tide staff (located under the radar tide gauge).
The second goal has been to recover the data of the GNSS antenna placed on the tide gauge mast in the objective to do reflectometry analysis.

2020-12-03 (04/12/2020)

D.Dausse (CNRS) and E.Poirier (ULR) have fixed the barometer Vaisala PTU200. It is now interfaced with the GR50 and outputs Atmospheric pressure and temperature at 1min interval. GR50 has been properly attached to the wall.

[RGPmail] - 2019-06-26 (29/07/2019)

The data from GNSS station ILDX (17, France) are available since session 2019-176a. Missing data are definitely lost.

2019-06-07 (07/06/2019)

ILDX breakdown since session 152t. Inbestigation aborted on day 158 due to a storm at Aix. No idea of what is causing the disfunctioning. Station dowmn will hopefully be fixed next week day 163. GNSS Antenna is still in place and no power failure has been reported by local contacts. E.Poirier

Dear colleagues,

We have not received any data from ILDX station since Saturday, session 152t.
We do not know the cause of the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Best regards,

The station ILDX (Ile d'AZix, France) is working now.
Missing data have been saved.

[EUREFmail-7923] - 2015-04-30 (30/04/2015)

The site of the station ILDX ( Ile d'Aix, France) is encountering some
electric problems since the DOY 118e. The missing data are definitely lost.

We try and fix it as soon as possible.
