Thanks for your respective emails.  The file does indeed contain
information for more than one point, which is in itself an important
lesson for future occupations.  I will explore the weblink provided in
Lou's email to see how to carve up the file.

Many thanks

Any ASCII editor, anyway.  (I wouldn't recommend anything
like Microsoft Word!)

Shelby is right about the spacing, too, and it's not just OPUS.
RINEX is rigidly formatted, more than one might imagine just
looking first time at a random RINEX file.  See, e.g.


where if you go down to the tables (A1, ...) at the end, you'll
see the formatting specified (in Fortran-ese) for each line at
the right.
