hi John,

The response from Trimble's RTX support is basically void of information (since they
are not familiar with teqc and their response is pure speculation), so I suggest
first getting some real preliminary information:

On both the teqc-produced and Trimble utility-produced RINEX, run teqc with the
'-O.sum .' option and at least see which SVs and observables are in each RINEX
file.  (See https://postal.unavco.org/pipermail/teqc/2016/002204.html.)

Also, which options are you using with teqc to translate to the RINEX that
Trimble's RTX service?
