Hi Harald,
I am aware of the complexity of the TETRA system, I just want to implement the 
physical layer (Layer 1) and if I can also the Layer 2 of the protocol and be 
able to show that it can be done with GR.  I want to create both the RX and TX 
path using GnuRadio.

I am working on implement the blocks similar to those on Figure 4.1 and 4.2 of 
EN 300 392-2: V3.4.1 (2010-08). 

That shouldn't be such a difficult task.

Best regards,

Please understand that it is quite a big task to do this.  A receive-only
implementation like what we have now is relatively simple, but in order
to run a full TETRA system, you need to implement all the protocols like LLC,
LME, MM, CC and their associated logic, which is a huge task.

Getting something like a small transmitter goign that continuously transmits
a BSCH/BNCH should be a simple task that you can start with.  Basically use
the same code that we use in conv_enc_test.c to generate the type-5 bits,
feed them into the DQPSK modulator and try to see if TETRA handsets can
recognize the signal.
