I often find that the error messages reported by OPUS are what seems to be a 
random error message that may or may not be related to the actual problem. 
Many times resubmitting your data at a later date produces a solution. You 
could actually have the reported problem, but more than likely the error 
message is being generated due to submitting your data file very shortly 
after collection when the data from the surrounding CORS sites is not yet 
available. OPUS is very particular about the formatting, even ONE extra 
space or character in the header will cause the submittal to fail. You can 
edit the RINEX files with any text editor, just be careful!
