Avoid using -O.int to re-specify the decimation interval.
Only use it to specify the original interval.  Most of the
time this can be left off when you are decimating, unless
the original interval is 1 second or less and then you
should include -O.int to make sure that the first epochs get
considered in the decimation.

What you should be using for your case is:

   teqc -O.int 1 -O.dec 30 ...

Your example of "teqc -O.int 30 -O.dec 30 ..." is mentioned
in http://www.unavco.org/facility/software/teqc/bugs.html
(seach on "-O.int"), along with the consequences you observed.
