In preparation for upcoming VGOS operations at HartRAO with the accompanying GGOS requirement of 1 mm accuracy in station coordinates and global baselines, a first short baseline experiment between the HartRAO 26-m legacy antenna and the co-located 15-m antenna was conducted and is described here. Antenna parameters of the HartRAO 26-m and 15-m telescopes are investigated - data from geodetic VLBI sessions are analyzed with VieVS to further estimate the antenna axis offset as well as possible seasonal variations thereof. CONT campaigns in which HartRAO participated are analyzed to compare the antenna axis offset.
