A monthly series of Ukrainian Permanent GPS-network data is processed with the use of GAMIT/GLOBK ver. 10.1 and four weekly solutions are derived. These results are in good agreement with analogous solutions of the Local Analysis Centre at the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Four combined solutions and transformation parameters between the coordinate systems are computed. An analysis of the solutions shows that it is possible to work with GAMIT/GLOBK according to EPN standards and that combined solution can be used as a product of the Local Analysis Centre.
