You loss some information when you save a PSN file as a SAC file. This is
because the SAC format does not have all of the fields that the PSN format
has. The main fields that are missing are the comment and station name

>In the last week I begin to use a dos program (Iaspei) to localize
regional event, that read sac format (ascii, also) input file. But, with
these files saved by WQ, it's impossible to run it fine, because it don't
recognize the sac-header (station ID and coordinates). The same problem
with ascii format (ascii-psn..?).

If you have a SAC file that does work with the Iaspei program send it to me
(in a private message) so I can see what the difference is between a file
saved by WinQuake and one that can be read in by the program.
