Hi all,

 

A couple of updates:

 

.         gr-baz (git & SVN) now contains the fix to the issue regarding the
'gruel_common' compilation error (thanks Alex Csete).



.         The OP25 block now first tries to use the op25.fsk4_demod_ff, and
then falls back to fsk4.demod_ff if the former is not found.



.         For those experimenting with OP25 and the RTL DVT-B USB dongles,
I've started a Google Group
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ultra-cheap-sdr>  for discussion
surrounding the device, and its use with gr-baz/GNU Radio/plugin on Windows.

 

Regarding the error seen by 'allanjs1986' in GRC:

 

Type "msg" is not a possible type.

 

I'm a little worried about this - are you using the latest GRC? I thought
message queues (specified by the 'msg' type) were still around. does anyone
know more?

If you need a workaround, then just comment out/delete the last <source>
block (name: 'tune', type: 'msg') in gr-baz/grc/op25.xml, do a sudo make
install, restart GRC, and remember to set 'Output auto tune' to 'No' in the
OP25 decoder block properties.

Hi all,

This is a known issue - unfortunately I just haven't had the time to make
necessary modifications (will do so now), but the temporary work-around is
to symlink:

 

    /usr/local/include/gnuradio/swig/gruel_common.i ->
/usr/local/include/gruel/swig/gruel_common.i

 

The new version will be in the gr-baz repo hopefully very soon.

 

Thanks for the report,

Balint

Hi,

 

I've just tried building the gr-baz module on a couple of different systems
but I'm encountering a make error along the lines of: ./baz_swig.cc: No such
file or directory

 

I note someone else has also encountered the same error and pasted their
make output to pastebin (http://pastebin.com/y6dUAxC1). This is the same
error I'm getting. Anyone got any clues? Is this a generated file that isn't
being generated, or a file that hasn't been included in the svn repo?

 

Thanks

 

Cheers

Richard

Ha ha, it's a pleasure to see this project move forward.

The cheapest one I've ever built was for $1.00 - picked up an old crystal
scanner at a hamfest that happened to have a crystal in it on the proper
frequency for a local P25 station.  It only needed a disc-tap using parts
from the junkbox...
