The Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI) started a new project for constructing VGOS station (Ishioka Geodetic Observing Station) in Japan. The construction of the antenna (radio telescope) has been completed and the necessary equipment (Front-end, Back-end, H-maser, and so on) has also been delivered. New receiving systems have been developed for the new antenna. In order to achieve compatibility with legacy S/X-band receiving, tri-band feed system developed by Spanish IGN is employed. By installing the tri-band feed system on the new antenna, S/X-band experiment was carried out on Feb. 19th in Japanese domestic VLBI network including Tsukuba, Aira, Chichijima, Kashima-34m, Kashima-11m, Koganei, VERA-Mizusawa, and VERA-Ishigaki. In the presentation, the first geodetic result of the new antenna will be briefly reported.
