Maybe the first thing to do is see if you agree with the OPUS software.
Is the RINEX file for two or more points?  If not, then there is some
other problem.

If it is for two or more, teqc could be used to split it up, but you
would have to know the time periods that the antenna was at each point,
and then edit the original file by time windowing:


and probably additionally use the -O.mo and -O.mn options for each time
splice to make sure that the marker name and number are correct for
that period of time.

In case of continuing problems with OPUS, though, the best thing to
do is contact OPUS support at ngs.opus at noaa.gov

Hope this helps.
