This has recently piqued my interest too but didn’t see any response to
Matteo’s query.

Has anyone looked into this ?

If not, Matteo, I guess it’s up to us :slight_smile:

Kind Regards,

Hi Hugh,

I don’t know of anyone who’s done it.
Dive in :wink:

Hi - I have not done anything along that path yet - in June, at the
hamvention in Fredrichshafen I got the chance to see the SBS-1 device
live… it does what we would like to do with the usrp -
http://www.kinetic-avionics.co.uk/ and it was showing alot of traces by
only means of the vertical shown in the picture.

I am still interested in the subject but I haven’t found any decent
documentation about the protocol by googling a bit around…

I believe the specs are available from RTCA, Inc.

See http://adsb.tc.faa.gov/ADS-B.htm towards the bottom of the page.

Hi everyone, I have built a brand new vmware image with updated fedora
core 5 and latest gnuradio from trac - obviously the usrp won’t work
because of usb2 not supported on vmware, but it’s a nice to have for on
the run gnuradioing.

Only problem is the image takes 5 GB so it’s kinda akward to be
exchanged
via net…should there be anyone interested in getting it, we could find
a
way.

cheers
Matteo

Yes, it’s a nice piece of kit.

Yes, this seems right, the only specs I could find were purchasable
through RTCA for around USD$300 which is getting a little steep for a
hobby project :slight_smile:

This chap (a fellow ham as it turns out) has a little info and some
links;

http://www.tech-software.net/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=2&MMN_position=2:2

Including a reference for the bitstream timing, but not the contents of
the frame. I infer it uses pulse position encoding for the response
based on this link;

http://web.mit.edu/6.933/www/Fall2000/mode-s/modulation.html

I figure I’ll do some more digging around in the first instance for
resources on the web.

Failing that maybe see if I can at least capture some datastreams off
air and see where that leads…

No free Linux solution

As for distributing, if you can keep it to one dvd maybe Matt would agree
to sell on his web site for a nominal charge, say $15.

Folks, if you use one of the distributions that we like,
everything is already packaged. See

Two tumbs up for Ubuntu 6.06 LTS !!!

I ordered my two USRPs about 2 years ago and could
never make it to work under linux (FC3,FC4 RHx…).

I finally gave up on it and started to play USRP under
Windows.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to give Ubuntu a try
– and Voila – its working like a champ…

Hi Greg,
svn, and grnuradio sources are already onboard, what is missing is geda
and
usrp schematics, which I can easily add
sorry but I do not know what exactly fx2 microcontroller tools
are…maybe I
am still sleepy :slight_smile: (spent last night installing
new Athlon64 MB after my XP died on friday ;( )

regards
Matteo

Subject: RE: [Discuss-gnuradio] Fedora Core 5 gnuradio vmware image

This is a great idea as it took me about a week to install gnuradio and
usrp
my first try. If you can make an image that has ALL the gnuradio tools
would
be even better, e.g. at least:

*fpga compile (is there a linux altera solution yet)
*svn for pulling the latest code
*gnuradio base and code compile
*the gEDA software and usrp schematics, layout files
*fx2 microcontroller tools

As for distributing, if you can keep it to one dvd maybe Matt would
agree to
sell on his web site for a nominal charge, say $15.

I think it’s just a matter of time before vmware supports usb2.0. Once
we
have that, it’s like you say one click to a working gnuradio and folks
can
spend more time developing and less time configuring.

Thanks,
Clark

Hello, I have noticed that the DC offset removal IIR filter that was in
the old gmsk2.py is not there anymore in the new gmsk.py - is
there any
particular reason for that? Or is it simply that it has been
moved
somewhere else along the modules chain?
