Well, first, that should be:

kyti2440.08o.gz -- this is a RINEX obs file compressed with gzip
kyti2440.08d.Z  -- this is a Hatanaka-compression of a RINEX obs file,
                    and then compressed with `compress`

First, you have to uncompress one of these, e.g.

`gunzip kyti2440.08o.gz` creates kyti2440.08o
`uncompress kyti2440.08d.Z` creates kyti2440.08d

If the Ashtech software can read the Hatanaka-compressed file
kyti2440.08d, so much the better, but then you really only need
kyti2440.08o or kyti2440.08d.

I very much doubt that the Ashtech software requires renaming
the files into uppercase, i.e. kyti2440.08O or kyti2440.08D.
