Dear all, 

As announced last week, as of  27/12/2012 10:15UTC the station VILL is 
running with a new multi-GNSS Septentrio PolaRx4 receiver and Septentrio 
Chokering MC antenna. 

Data is not yet uploaded to the CDDIS server, but will be within a week or 
so when testing has concluded. The new site log vill_20121227.log will 
duly become available on the IGS website. 

Details of the new receiver and antenna are as follows. Note that also the 
external reference is now a 10 MHz signal which thus might have some 
impact on the clock stability.
