As it was shown at the previous stage of the research, positions of permanent EPN/IGS stations, whose antennas are placed on buildings, can have non-geodynamical individual seasonal variations (one-year periodical ones with extremums in winter and summer). It was shown too, that they are caused by an expanding-contracting effect of such stations’ carrying base under influence of temperature seasonal changes. Typical features of the mentioned phenomenon were displayed through some EPN/IGS stations behaviour. In this paper the research is carried on. Additional features of this effect, changing the station’s behaviour, were found out. A way to reduce temperature influence on stations positions was noted. At last, it was shown that positions of permanent EPN/IGS stations located on building roofs can have daily variations with the same range and nature as seasonal ones.
