[teqc] Trimble RTX and teqc

hi John,

(Note for the teqc list: John sent me a sample .t02 file from his Trimble R10,
on which the following is based.)

It appears that all you have to do, for this case of a .tgd converted from a
.t02 from an R10, is include the teqc option '+CA_L1' during translation.
E.g. if you include '+CA_L1' for the SV/observation summary run:

[1156] teqc +quiet +CA_L1 -G +all -O.sum . 42400512.tgd
          L1    L2    C1    C2    P2    S1    S2
         ----  ----  ----  ----  ----  ----  ----
    R04   240   240   240   240   240   240   240
    R14   240   240   240   240   240   240   240
    R13   240   240   240   240   240   240   240
    R12   170     0   170     0     0   170     0
    R03   240   240   240   240   240   240   240
    R02   240   240   240   240   240   240   240
    R15    82    82    82    82    82    82    82

... then you see that the RINEX L1 (and S1) are now populated for GLONASS.

Here at UNAVCO are vastly more familiar with the Trimble NetR9, and teqc has been
tuned to get the RINEX L1, S1, and D1 (the latter if you wanted L1 doppler as well)
for GLONASS to be from the observables of the GLONASS G1HA ("high-accuracy") signal
(analogous to the GPS L1P(Y) signal, except there's no encryption on G1HA).

However, based on your file, the Trimble R10 does not appear to track G1HA, and
instead tracks just the G1SA ("standard accuracy") signal (analogous to the GPS L1C/A
signal). Therefore, you have to instruct teqc to get the RINEX L1 (and S1 and D1) from
a different location.

Note for all: In general, I'd like find time to disambiguate selection of
GPS L1C/A observables from L1P(Y) observables using '+CA_L1' and '-CA_L1'
vs. the selection of GLONASS G1SA observables from G1HA observables using
a new set of options, say, '+SA_L1' and '-SA_L1'.  This has been on my "to do"
list for quite a while, but these options don't yet exist.

cheers,
