Possibly but you need a correction that gives
a linear error while your gives a phase error
on the diurnal term. The characteristics are

If your code can't read the data when everyone
else can, that's your problem. I even sent you
a copy of the data in Excel including my code
used to read the files as a macro. You could
have used that and stepped through to make sure
there was no trickery but you prefer to have an

That again affects only magnitude. The
results showed you had a discrepancy of
about 26 degrees (IIRC) in the location
of the craft measured from two sites on
the same day with a worst case systematic
error of less than 1 degree. That ruled
your model out.
