Opus Question

Thanks to this message board, I have recently entered the world of using OPUS. It seems almost too easy, but my results have been fantastic so far.

I'm about to turn out a survey with state plane coordinates, but I'm at a bit of a loss with a particular note to put on the survey with where my coordinates came from. So far I have a note stating that "STATE PLANE COORDINATES SHOWN HEREON ARE BASED UPON RAPID STATIC OBSERVATIONS PERFORMED ON JANUARY 8, 2010 AND PROCESSED BY THE ONLINE POSITIONING USER SERVICE (OPUS) PROVIDED BY THE NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY. HORIZONTAL COORDINATES ARE REFERENCED TO THE NORTH AMERICAN DATUM OF 1983, 2007 ADJUSTMENT."

I feel like I should list the base stations used for this, but OPUS used nine of them. That seems a bit overboard. I suppose I could make an excel spreadsheet and show that under a horizontal control table.

Any advice?
