hi James, Miranda,

We've known about this problem with NetRS phase values at least since
the spring when testing the NetRS for PBO.  Basically, the phase values
can have very large whole-cycle ambiguity offsets.  Trimble has a new
NetRS firmware -- at least for PBO testing -- which eliminates the
problem.  (Brian Frohring or someone else at Trimble might want to
comment further.)

With regards to teqc: Yes, there is a fix in place to eliminate this
problem -- assuming that you would be using teqc to translate NetRS
raw data (.dat or RT17) into RINEX.  If you are talking about reading
a messed up RINEX file, then no, there is nothing that can be done
except re-translate the original raw data into corrected RINEX.
Just let me know which build of teqc you are currently using (e.g.
execute `teqc +id | grep build` and send me that result).
