GPS observations for week 1196 of some IGS/EPN permanent stations and two new Ukrainian stations Kharkiv and Evpatoria were processed for testing purposes in the Data Analysis Centre which is being established in the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The processing was carried out with Bernese GPS Software ver. 4.2. For comparison eight solutions with different input parameters were generated. Final solution computed according to the standard EPN procedure is in a good agreement with combined EPN solution for the week as well as with solutions of some individual EPN Local Analysis Centres.
