Bad Coordinates

The last few jobs I performed, with the base station (T2) set at autonomous, I received base coordinates thousands of feet to the west of it actual location.

Yesterday, the coordinate the T2 collected, when beginning the job, matched the DPOS & OPUS reports(227 minutes of data collected), but both reported the T2 to be 67,751.79' S89°42'24"W of its actual location. Both reports stated the date to be 06/08/2020, when the data was collected on 06/09/2020. The date and time on the TLS were correct

All of the the rover locations taken on the site appear to be at the correct location.

I don't understand why I am getting these bad coordinates for the base station..

Send the project to Support for better understanding.
 
OK..I found out that I am not completely crazy. Attached is a pdf of my project I was working on yesterday that I exported from the project file. The very first item (Base1) has exactly the same coordinate of a completely different project that I worked the day before.. Why and/or how did it migrate to this project? Points 5001, 5002 & 5003 were created by separate sessions when we were having issues with poor range due to UHF modulation settings.

For some reason the TLS would not accept the settings for using DQPSK. It would only accept D8 or D16. It seems to work OK with D8.
