We have changed the External Frequency from External to Internal on the following stations NOR7, LEK6, ARJ6, MAR6, MAR7, HAS6, KAD6 and VAE6.

[IGSSTATION-6908] - 2016-12-22 (03/01/2017)

The old Efratom clock on MAR6 and MAR7 was replaced by a Symmetricom 8040C Rb-clock on 2016-12-21 12 UT.

The new clock is tied to GPS time via the 1PPS output on the MAR6 Trimble NetR9.

[IGSSTATION-5217] - 2012-12-13 (13/12/2012)

I would just like to inform you that the receiver history of the Swedish IGS-station MAR6 has been changed in the log-file.
The site started in IGS as the IGEX/IGLOS station MR6G and became 2003-08-19 the IGS-station MAR6. MAR6 was already before that date included in EPN, where it submitted data from a GPS only receiver connected to the same antenna. The old IGS-site log reflects the receiver history of MR6G before 2003-08-19, the new one is identical to the EPN site log, i.e. reflecting the GPS only receiver before 2003-08-19.
The new site-log complies with the data in the RINEX-archives at IGS and EPN.
