Following a highly accurate recalculation and thanks to the arrival of many partner stations in the West Indies, the RGAF09 coordinates of all stations in the West Indies have been updated to ensure a greater coherence of the entire area.
This includes Martinique (LMMF and FFT2), Guadeloupe (ABMF, PPTG, DEHA, LDIS and MAGT), Saint-Martin (STMT) and Saint-Barthélemy (GSTV) stations.
Some TERIA stations in Guadeloupe have also been renamed, using the acronyms of the IPGP stations to which they follow.
The changes are as follows:
ANBE -> ABD0
CABE -> CBE0
LGOS -> FFE0
SAIN -> FNA0
STCL -> HOUE
STFR -> ASF0
The dataflow for station FFT2 (Fort-de-France) stopped at session 346f. We don't know the reason.
Mission carried out by Thomas Donal (IGN) and Etienne Poirier (ULR) from 01 to 03 December 2015: Since the FFTG station has been down for a long time, it was decided to stop this station and replace it. The mast was kept and extended by 1 meter and the top plate was changed by a 5 mm 316L stainless steel plate. The Yagi antenna (for the tide gauge) has been lowered slightly to avoid disturbances of GNSS signals. We installed a Leica GR25 GNSS receiver and a Leica AR20 antenna and this assembly is the FFT2 station. FFT2 replaces and cancels FFTG.
