Hi Uwe

Ok, had a look at it. Maybe it's a dump question (I am really not
professional in this area) but as my target datum is WGS84 shouldn't I
use different shift factors than for ETRS89?

Or is the shift from ETRS89 to WGS84 independent from the actual
location? Google gives me the impression that it is.
