unix2dos dos2unix changing file access

Is there any way to keep unix2dos or dos2unix from chaning the file properties? e.g.

create file testfile as user xfer
ls -la > testfile [return]
ls -la [return]
-rw-rw-rw- 1 xfer xfer 529 Aub 10 09:52 testfile
unix2dos testfile [return]
ls -la [return]
-rw------- 1 xfer xfer 529 Aub 10 09:52 testfile

I would like to do the commands above with a script. My work around right now is:

unix2dos testfile
chmod 666 testfile

It seems strange that I should have to do that.
