It turns out that the transmit tester likes this signal, but my
handsets do not; they do not even recognize it. Perhaps this form of
testing is not as reliable as I thought.

So I reverted the commit to handle start/end phase errors. I also
setup the correlators with single pulse (I see no benefit for the more
complicated modulator on receive), and set timing for 4sps. I receive
RA and normal bursts fine. The start/end transients will need to be
handled a different way.
