 Tom Reiss will provide broadcasting base coordinates for RTK-GPS
  The following information pertains to the GPS base station
    "DP01" used for the SWATH bathymetry survey at Deception
    Pass, February 2010.
    The base station was programmed using the following coordinates: (see
    also "deception-base-setup.JPG")
    Reference Frame: WGS84 (G1150)
    Epoch: 2010.1178
    Latitude: N 48 23' 57.74198"
    Longitude: W 122 39' 51.06297"
    Ellipsoid Height: -18.429m
 
    The average values for the derived OPUS solution for
    "DP01" are:
    Reference Frame: ITRF00 [same as WGS84 (G1150)]
    Epoch: 2010.1178
    Latitude: N 48 23' 57.74088"
    Longitude: W 122 39' 51.06220"
    Ellipsoid Height: -18.411m
 
    The differences to be added to the RTK broadcast locations are:
    Latitude: -0.00110"
    Longitude: -0.00077"
    Ellipsoid Height: 0.018m
 
    Using UTM coordinates as a comparison:
    The base station was programmed using the following coordinates:
    Reference Frame: NAD83, UTM zone 10
    Epoch: 2002.0000
    Northing: 5360744.398m
    Easting: 524857.664m
    Ellipsoid Height: -18.104m
    Orthometric Height: 3.939m (based Geoid09)
 
    The average values for the derived OPUS solution for
    "SKA1" are:
    Reference Frame: NAD83, UTM zone 10
    Epoch: 2002.0000
    Northing: 5360744.364m
    Easting: 524857.680m
    Ellipsoid Height: -18.086m
    Orthometric Height: 3.957m (based Geoid09)
 
    The differences to be added to the RTK broadcast locations are:
    Northing: -0.034m
    Easting: 0.016m
    Ellipsoid Height: 0.018m
    Orthometric Height: 0.018m
