Subject: Kiruna (KIRU) firmware upgrade

The TurboRogue SNR-8100 has been upgraded to firmware
3.2.32.1 on 10/06/96 between 0900 and 1000 UTC.

The new station information form is included below.

Another item concerning the station that can be of relevance is
that after an antenna replacement at this station in June 95
the malfunctioning antenna (s/n 205) has been dismounted and 
an insulation problem detected. This could be the reason
of the bad data quality that the analysis centres experienced 
previous to the antenna replacement last year.
