Subject: EDIN00GBR - station decommissioning

Dear Colleagues,

I am sorry to say that we have been given notice to decommission our Edinburgh
(EDIN00GBR) EPN station. This station has been in operation since March 2000 and
the last day of operation will be 7th September 2020.
We have been in lengthy negotiations to try to retain this station but,
disappointingly, have not been successful. Unfortunately we do not as yet have
a replacement available though we are in the process of trying to locate a
replacement site.

I am sorry for any inconvenience the loss of this station may cause.

Best regards
