Dear Colleagues,

Unfortunately, the Ashtech chokering antenna at the Hartebeesthoek RAO, 
Krugersdorp South Africa (HRAO) station has been damaged by lightning and 
the receiver is not tracking. The outage started on December 28th (2006.362)
00:00 UTC, but the antenna problem was not confirmed until this week. 
We will attempt to bring the station back up as quickly as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this outage may cause.

Maintenance and operations of the HRAO station is a collaborative effort 
supported by JPL, UNAVCO, and the Hartebeesthoek RAO in Krugersdorp, with 
funding provided by NASA's Earth Surface and Interior Focus Area - Science 
Mission Directorate.

Best regards,

     -Oivind Ruud
