Gaah! I meant sqrt(I^2 + Q^2). I need my evening coffee!

If the Gaussian spreading isn't too great you can receive GMSK with an MSK receiver, and treat the result of spreading as some intersymbol interference. See http://www.wescottdesign.com/articles/MSK/mskTop.html for a really old, really crude, really student (but really working) design of an MSK receiver. It was, according to my thesis advisor, the second receiver design ever conceived and made to work for the USGC DGPS datalink service. As an alternative, you can filter the GMSK with a matched filter and run the result through a discriminator (maybe clip it to a constant absolute value first). This will probably lose you some SNR (someone here will comment on whether this is true), but it'll certainly get you up and running quickly.

This will directly give you the frequency information Then you could hardslice to find if transmitted data was +/1 Regards sure
From: Pat Z on 26 Feb 2010 22:57 Hi, Sure, Can I ask you why atan2 would work? I thought Q^2 + I^2 will bring me back the incrementally added phase information. Why would tangent do? thanks Pat > Hi Pat, > you can compute phi = atan2(Q,I) and compute d(phi) (use diff(phi) in > matlab).

The GFSK signal can be represented as x(t) = A Cos(wt+theta(t)) All the information is in theta(t). theta(t) = 2*pi*h *integral g(tau) d(tau)where g(t) is the modulating waveform and the limits of integration are from infinity to t and h is the modulation index If you express the integral as a summation, you notice that theta(nT) = 2*pi*h *T summation(g(kT)) where limits of summation is from infinity to n, where T is symbol duration With the above, you can exress theta(nT) = theta((n1)T) + 2*pi*h*T*g(nT), So notice that the difference in angle will give you the information sequence. So we use atan which is inverse tangent to compute the angle and take difference with previous angle Hope this helps. Regards suren
