Dear Colleagues,

Ref. [IGSSTATION-1386].
A new ASHTECH UZ-12 receiver has been installed at the McDonald Optical 
Observatory in Texas (MDO1). Please also note that a powered GPS signal 
splitter has been inserted allowing the use of the existing AOAD/M_T 
antenna. New data is being published starting today, February 9th 
(2007.040) 00:00 UTC.

An updated sitelog has been submitted to the IGS. We would also like to 
acknowledge the assistance from local personnel at the Observatory in 
handling the equipment swap, and NOAA-NGS for providing the new Ashtech 

We apologize for the inconvenience the outage during the equipment swap 
may have caused.

Maintenance and operations of the MDO1 station is a collaborative effort 
supported by JPL, UNAVCO, NGS, and the University of Texas McDonald 
Observatory, with funding provided by NASA's Earth Surface and Interior 
Focus Area - Science Mission Directorate.

Best Regards,

   -Oivind Ruud
