That depends on what the format of the file is.  You can try `teqc +mdf filename`
and if you agree with what teqc says the format of the file is, then
translation to RINEX obs can be accomplished with as little as `teqc filename`.
If you don't agree, or need more options during translation, then see

The design of teqc is to output a specific version of RINEX, and currently
that is 2.11 for the observation files.  This is what is output whether
you are translating raw data (old or current) to RINEX, or editing RINEX
(version 1, 2, or 2.xx <= 2.11).

Trimble's TGO, the last I heard, simply will not accept RINEX obs labeled
as 2.11, regardless of what is in it.  (This might even be just simple
L1-only data with L1 and C1.)

As long as your RINEX obs does not contain anything specific to 2.11 that
is not in 2.10 (e.g. GPS L2C code pseudorange = "C2" in RINEX 2.11), then
just edit the first line of the RINEX file, changing the "2.11" to "2.10"
and re-try it in TGO.

I'm not familiar with any SIRGAS recommendation, but if you want to
qc the RINEX using teqc, it should be fairly straightforward; see
