[op25-dev] difference between op25.decoder_bf and op25.decoder_ff

Hi,

I've just got a funcube myself and just this morning support for it made it
into the GNURadio trunk. That should make using them lots easier. I am
looking forward to seeing the DVB-T support get done because that will make
using SDR *much* cheaper (23USD delivered!).

The question you ask concerns the interface to the decoder... the _ff
version has float inputs and outputs and the other takes bytes (actually
two-bit symbols) inputs and float outputs. The latter needs a slicer before
it but that is conceptually the right thing to do and so the _ff version is
deprecated. Hope that helps.

Stevie
