Stuffit lite is fine for files that have been so compressed (and have a
".sit" extension. As someone else pointed out: Fetch (and other internet
tools) will decode .hqx files on retrieval, however you have obviously not
used such a tool and are stuck with a file in this format.
When that happens you need to use (predictably enough) Binhex 4.0, NOT 5.0
(usually - I forget the exact explanation). This should be readily
available out on the net somewhere. Fire it up and select "upload to
application" and away she goes!!
