station density along some sections of the Australian coast
has meant that station codes 601 onwards have been reordered
compared to those in earlier versions of the PSMSL data set.
=========================== FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 20-MAY-96 :
May 1996: all data up to 1984 revised with new set from authority 62
