Option '-O.s' currently only edits the 'TYPE' field in the first header
line of the resultant RINEX obs file.

For editing SVs, see `teqc +help` or:


Assuming there's no GLONASS or proto-Galileo data in the input and
just GPS and SBAS (as would the case with data from a ublox), probably
the command that you want is:

teqc -O.s G -S foobar.ubx > foobar.09o

Yes, but that's not the problem here.  If the data is from a
ublox receiver, it's L1-only.  The qc algorithms are for dual-
frequency data, e.g. L1- and L2- from GPS, where both the phase
and a code pseudorange for both carrier frequencies are needed
for a "complete" observation (for qc purposes).

Doing a qc on L1-only data, you probably want to try:

teqc -P -L2 +qc -nav foobar.09n foobar.09o > foobar.qc

i.e. -P == "no P-code data" and -L2 == "no L2 data".  Even here,
though, the qc will not return the same type of stats that it
would on dual-frequency data.

Qc-ing raw data is a little trickier.  Generally you have to
specify a window that you are interested in, though this does
not necessarily mean specifying a start and end time.  E.g. if
you use the +dX option, this specifies a window length from the
first valid epoch in the raw data.  If you want the ASCII "plot"
files, then you might have to also specify the sample interval
using -O.int.
