So the ref1 should be: 71 67.86 89 78.70? You might want to clarify what the binary format is first. Is it little endian or big endian? Is it only positive or does it include negatives?

Also how is the conversion going to be done? once you know how it's formatted you shuold be able to find a script or make one easily enough to do the conversion for you..
