[teqc] teqc +qc "invalid LLI" error

The problem that Paul Jamason @ SOPAC and I were having stemmed from
not using crx2rnx ver.u.2.4.2.  If you use crx2rnx ver.u.2.4.2 to
H-decompress the NetRS .YYd files at the UNAVCO or SOPAC archives, you
will end up with valid RINEX and then teqc won't complain.
