Subject: MAS1 upgrade to ACT

After a failure in March 1999 the Maspalomas receiver was shipped for
repair to AOA. This opportunity has been used to upgrade it to ACT.
We apologize for the long downtime which included two shipments to
AOA. The new data collection was resumed on DOY 228/99.

We are following the recommendations of igsmail 2320 for the receiver
downloading in the way that the cross correlation observables can be
reconstituted.

The rest of the ESA receivers, kiru, kour, pert and vill have been 
upgraded to firmware 3.2.32.9 in the last weeks for GPS roll-over
compatibility and the SIF's were updated. A flash card with the new
firmware has also been shipped to Malindi and we expect to make the
upgrade before the roll-over.

The new Maspalomas station info form is included below.

Best regards.
