Dear Colleagues,

A new version of the 'BKG NTRIP Client' (BNC, v2.0, OS) is available from
http://igs.bkg.bund.de/ntrip/download. It is worthwhile to point out that
BNC now supports fully kinematic real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP)
with state-of-the-art accuracy using GPS and GLONASS observations.

Appropriate GPS and GLONASS clock estimates sampled at 5 seconds are provided
by BKG & TUP in the framework of RTIGS and EUREF-IP. They come from a truly
combined real-time GNSS analysis using GPS-Solutions' RTNet software. See
http://igs.bkg.bund.de/ntrip/orbits for further real-time products contributing
to IGS and EUREF and coming from Geo++ and GSOC/DLR.

The clock/orbit stream format in use follows a draft of the 'State Space
Representation' Working Group in RTCM SC104. Please note that proposed RTCMv3
messages are of premature nature and not yet supported by commercial products.

Sincerely,
Georg Weber & Leos Mervart

Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy (BKG), Frankfurt, Germany &
Czech Technical University Prague (TUP), Department of Geodesy
