Old spec? I thot these are the fairly new ones. So we have 4 types in Sabah incl RBM?
At least your boys in Sandakan has painted most of them recently but pls ask them not
to paint over the info plate. Makes it very difficult to see. :mrgreen:

This one located right in front of Princess Anne orphanage in Likas. Opposite the junction of a kindergarten (I think it's Tadika Chung Hwa)

Decided to take my BH and junior to "scale" Bukit Jambul. Also at the same to take down the coordinates of the trigpoint up there.
The point is next to the tea kiosk built by the volunteers.

Image
Coordinates:N5°20.587' E100°17.187'
Elevation: 253m ASL


The location is 47m (direction: N48°E from the georef point) away from the recorded georeference point. Looking at the topo line, the peak is supposed to be 47m from the point too. I checked it out. It is the highest peak at where the pole is erected.

Image
The trigpoint.

Image
The base. No sign nothing to tell the exact coordinates.

I have not seen a personal GPS station before. Do you have a pix?

All GPS stations discovered here are documented in JUPEM Portal. Please let me know if you find any GPS station discovered here are not documented or built by JUPEM.

What I meant in my previous statement was so far 4 GPS stations had been found by members.

I've found a GPS station which was built by a private company. There are 25,000 GPS stations all together covering whole Peninsula Malaysia which involve 107 private companies.

Lat: 6° 6' 12.2"
Long: 102° 15' 50.8"

Some 200 GPS stations covering Kota Bharu town..
