Channel code "J" also allows a Medway MK I tide gauge receiver to receive a transmitted tide from an MK II transmitter unit; and code "J" also allows a Medway MK II tide gauge receiver to receive a transmitted tide from a MK I transmitter unit.
The channel code that is decoded corresponds to the slot of a tide observation.
If the (local) tide datum at the transmitter unit and the survey datum do not coincide, the separation in height between the two datums should be entered as "Property" of the tide observation, i.e. as "Fixed system C-O".
The tide observation can be defined at a "Fixed Node".
The present driver can only decode tide heights from one tide gauge, but in the future tide observations from multiple fixed stations can be decoded (and weighted).
Enter the channel code as slot number. Always enter slot "J" for Vyner MK I observations.
