hi Kerry --

Check the header of the 3.00 file to see what translation
software was used; it'll be in the PGM field, probably the
2nd line.

If the .t01 files are still available, you can use Trimble's
`runpkr00`, available for Windows, Linux, Solaris Sparc and x86:

http://facility.unavco.org/software/download_transfer/trimble/trimble.html

to convert the .t01 to .dat or .tgd (depending on whether the
.t01 files were stored using RT17 or RT27 data structures), and
then use teqc to convert .dat or .tgd to RINEX 2.11.

cheers,
