[IGSSTATION-7846] - 2020-01-24 (04/02/2020)

The data outage reported in IGSSTATION-7845 has been resolved. Due to power issues at the station no data was recorded during the outage.

[IGSSTATION-7845] - 2020-01-24 (04/02/2020)

We are currently experiencing an unknown outage at the station TOW200AUS. As a result no data streams or data products will be available until the problem is resolved.

Our team is working with local contacts to restore the station. Due to a long weekend in Australia we don’t expect the problem will be resolved until the 28 Jan.

Further updates will be provided as they become available.

[IGSSTATION-7731] - 2019-09-09 (20/09/2019)

TOW2 is currently offline. Most likely cause seems to be antenna failure. We are currently troubleshooting with local contacts to determine the cause, and aim to have the site back online within the week. RINEX and real time data will be unavailable until the issue is resolved.

[IGSSTATION-5538] - 2013-09-16 (16/09/2013)

Please be advised that due to local power problem there will be a permanent data outage for DOY 251 – 258, for all products.

[IGSSTATION-5478] - 2013-07-18 (29/07/2013)

Please be advised that the LEICA GRX1200GGPRO firmware has been upgraded from 8.20/3.019 to 8.71/3.822 at 2013-07-17T22:15Z. An updated site log has been submitted.

Due to a local tie survey there will be permanent data gap of around 24hrs from 2013-07-15T22:00Z. We apologise for any inconvenience.

There has also been damage to the met station cable, which has resulted in the recent met data outages, and will continue to do so until repaired.

[IGSSTATION-5265] - 2013-01-30 (30/01/2013)

Please be advised that TOW2 is now operational again with a new cable. The bushfire on the 10th December had damaged the cable and it took some time to replace. An updated log file has been submitted to IGS. Unfortunately there is a permanent data gap between the 10th Dec and 22nd Jan (2012-12-10T00:00Z - 2013-01-22T00:00Z).

[IGSSTATION-5204] - 2012-12-10 (11/12/2012)

Please be advised that the receiver at TOW2 (FW 8.20/3.019) has stopped tracking. We suspect a cable or antenna problem. We are currently seeking to identify the problem. It is possible the outage could extend into the new year.
