seems rtl_sdr is not generating the proper format. this was one of the
items on my list, give me a few days - i will try to find a solution
during the easter holiday, and send it to you. the software was meant to
be used with multiple receivers, so this should not be a problem.

i used the python stuff because it was already there, but prefer c too.

the qpsk demodulator is in python (i might try a c version later), the 
rest down the chain is proper c.
