Dear Norbert,

Your command is correct (if you want the RINEX going to stdout) but you
must be using a older version of teqc.  Reading of Leica MDB record id 119
(== 0x77) was added 2008 Dec 31:


so teqc versions 2009Mar23, 2009Oct19, or 2010Mar17 would be needed to
read these.  There have been a number of little tweaks made for reading
MDB 119 records up through 2009Aug20, so it be on the safe side you
should use one of the last two versions.  Also, most of the time teqc
should be able to recognize an MDB file without needing the '-leica mdb'
in the command.

BTW, those "Notice" (and similar "Warning" or "Error") messages go
to stderr, not stdout.
