Dear Ricardo,

The reason is the same for any translation with teqc: whatever metadata
that has been encountered by the first epoch to be output will be in
the header; otherwise (i.e. the metadata occurs after the first epoch
to be output) the metadata will not be in the header.

In your case, the UBX message with the antenna position must occur after
the first observation epoch.

What you can do: use '-O.px' or '-O.pg' to specify the position during
translation.  The coordinates can be obtained by using '+meta', e.g.
`teqc -ublox ubx +meta filename.ubx` which reads the entire file.
