Fellow Colleagues,

Four new stations have been added to the IGS Network.

CHTI is located in Chatham Island, New Zealand, and is intended to 
replace the IGS Reference Station CHAT in a few months. CHTI is located 
about 20 km north of CHAT. Both stations are producing data and is 
available at CDDIS. CHTI is operated by GNS Science (GeoNet) and Land 
Information New Zealand (LINZ)

FLRS is located in Flores Island in North Atlantic Ocean. This station 
will add excellent coverage given its unique location and its 
GPS+GLONASS capability. FLRS is operated by Portugese Geographical 

FUNC is located in Medeira Islands, Funchal. This station as well 
provides added GPS+GLONASS coverage and redundancy approximately 700 km 
off the coast of Morroco. FUNC is operated by Portugese Geographical 

LPAL is located in La Palma Island, Canary Islands. This station 
provides excellent GPS+GLONASS coverage in the approximate area as well.
