the Trimble NetR9 receiver at WGTN (Wellington, New Zealand) has been replaced today due to faulty internal batteries.
Due to this fault, data from 212/2018 (06 UTC) to 214/2018 (22 UTC) have been permanently lost.
Data logging and real time streaming are now restored.
We have recently found that the WGTN sitelog was missing one entry for WGTN (Wellington, New Zealand).
In detail, the ASHTECH Z-XII3, sn LP00155 receiver, had the firmware version “1E95” installed from 1996-08-19T22:13:01Z to 1999-06-13T16:42:58Z.
This has now been fixed, and a new version of the sitelog has been submitted and approved through the IGS Site Log Manager.
Rinex headers were already correct, so there is no need to resubmit these data.
Thanks to my GNS Science colleague Neville Palmer, we realized that we had a wrong record for the antenna installed at the IGS site WGTN (Wellington, New Zealand) in our database.
The time period affected runs from 1996-05-23 to 2005-03-21.
Unfortunately, this error was reflected in the IGS logfile , and in the header of all Rinex files uploaded to CDDIS and IGN during the above time period.
The antenna was wrongly recorded as ASH700936C_M .
The correct code to be considered is instead: ASH700936B_M
An updated version of the site log (4.1 and 4.2 fields) has been submitted and approved by IGS Central Bureau.
