                         GPS TRACKER ADVISORY

DOMES No.:      40105M002
MONUMENT No.    887006
LOCATION:       Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO)
                Penticton B.C, Canada


We have been informed that there will be an 8-12 hour power outage at DRAO
on Wednesday May 29.  This is required in order to switch over the main
power feed at the Observatory to a new building under construction. There
will also be disruption to the telecommunications to the site. The extent of
this is not known at this time. We hope to keep disruption to a minimum but
due to the extent of the work being carried out at the Observatory we have
no clear and definitive idea of the extent of the down time. We plan to keep
the maser on auxiliary power - unfortunately this may not be possible for
the entire GPS facility but we will certainly attempt to do so in which case
there will simply be a delay in submitting the data ... but then there is
Murphy ....

This is to inform you that we are expecting an 8-12 hour power outage 
here at DRAO on Wed May 29.  This is so that West Kootenay can switch 
over our main power feed to the new building
