[EUREFmail-8819] - 2016-12-06 (07/12/2016)

Further to EUREF Mail 8807 and 8817 data from the proposed EPN station SCIL (Scilly Isles) is now switched back on following the fix of the power supply problem.

[EUREFmail-8817] - 2016-12-02 (02/12/2016)

Further to EUREF Mail 8807 ( data from proposed EPN station SCIL (Scilly Isles) is turned off until further notice. The power supply problem has seriously affected the receiver which must now be replaced.

When the station is fixed and data back to proper quality another EUREF Mail will be sent.

[EUREFmail-8807] - 2016-11-22 (22/11/2016)

Please discard data from proposed EPN station SCIL (Scilly Isles) until further notice. A power supply problem on site is causing very intermittent data. The remote location means it might be a few weeks until the problem is resolved.
