SDR flowchart: POCSAG

Not sure any of these are entirely working, but the local area doesn’t appear to use POCSAG but has maybe gone onto FLEX as the frequency bands look a bit busy.

Simplest attempt is using a modified version of osmo-pocsag.  It writes out baseband to a file.  Create a fifo, and direct the the cmdline app to its output.
A more complex version is based on this (by bafe), and has some good waterfall pictures to give a better indication of what’s going on.  Confusingly it’s called gr-pocsag, and thus confusable with the POCSAG decoding GRC block by patchvonbraun here, which needs compiling and installing.
I’ll update this once I’ve actually either confirmed that what I’m seeing is not POCSAG or which/either/both/none works.

One thought on “SDR flowchart: POCSAG

  1. I can’t figure out how to make and install the gr-pocsag from patchvonbraun. This is the first time I’m trying to build a gnuradio block and I’m a little lost.
