Hello. It's my first post here. I have a question about work unit file structure. Data are coded - is there posiibility to encode it to get raw numbers? And if there is such a way, what is a structure of the data?

The first section is a lot of header information giving location, receiver, frequency range data, this bit is in plain text so you can read it. The next is the actual data, this is in a compressed format (7z I think), and is simply a list of power at fixed time intervals.
