                low pass filter is 3 db  down (0.7 ampl.);
                0- average for sample interval; 9999-no
                filtering; $7FFF-unknown
 21-22    SI    sample interval in second (60 for 1-min)
 23-24    DS    number of time samples in record (60)
 25-26    GNPD  geographical north pole distance in 0.01

 37-38    MN    minute (0-59) of record start (0 for 1-min)
 39-40    MV1   mean value for the 1-th component (usually
                X or H)
 41-42    MV2   mean value for the 2-nd component (usually
                Y or E)
 43-44    MV3   mean value for the 3-rd component (usually Z)
 45-48    BS1   base level for the 1-th comp, 4 bytes integer
 49-52    BS2   base level for the 2-nd comp, 4 bytes integer
 53-56    BS3   base level for the 3-rd comp, 4 bytes integer
 57-176   V1    60 values for the 1-th component
177-296   V2    60 values for the 2-nd component
297-416   V3    60 values for the 3-rd component


Field 3-10 are ASCII characters,
others are binary bytes or 2 bytes integers.
Components code: D,I-in 0.1'; H,F,X,Y,Z in nT;
E-magnetic east component perpendicular to H in nT;
Usually data recorded as XYZ.
Missing values are marked by 7FFF hecadec (32767).
Mean values are calculated if no more then 10 values
are missing.
