Abstract The Warkworth 12-m Radio Telescope is operated by the Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research (IRASR) at AUT University, Auckland, New Zealand. This report briefly reviews the characteristics of the 12-m VLBI station. We report on a number of technical developments; integration of the station DBBC with the Field System pointing algorithm, installation of a MET4 weather sensor and an experimental phase calibration system. We discuss work being done to improve the determination of ocean tide loading effects for the site and report on efforts to develop the capability to participate in EOP experiments.
