Documented History (by the NGS)
|01/01/1984 by NCGS (FIRST OBSERVED)
|DESCRIBED BY NORTH CAROLINA GEODETIC SURVEY 1984
SHELBY WHOS RADIO STATION TOWER IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 1.5 MILES WEST OF THE CENTER OF SHELBY. TO REACH STATION FROM US 74 BRIDGE OVER FIRST BROAD RIVER BRIDGE AT THE SW EDGE OF SHELBY, PROCEED EAST ALONG US 74 BUSINESS, AND 74 BY-PASS, FOR 0.4 MILES TO WHOS RADIO STATION AND TOWER APPROXIMATELY 350 FEET SOUTH.

RECOVERED IN GOOD CONDITION.
- The North Carolina/South Carolina HARNS have been completed but, due to contractual restrictions, coordinates for these stations will NOT be published in the near future. In the interim, the published coordinates in North and South Carolina will not be consistent with the Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS). The HARN coordinates for these stations are available upon request. Contact Gary Thompson(919-733-3836), or Lewis Lapine(803-896-7700). In addition, the published North and South Carolina positions (NAD 83 (1986)) are NOT consistent with those determined in adjacent state readjustments. The discontinuity between stations located in North or South Carolina and those in adjacent states which have been adjusted to the HARN may be as much as 5 decimeters. This will result in a significant loss of accuracy over lines crossing such state borders.
- The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in September 1992.
- The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
- The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
