jPOCSAG is a POCSAG paging protocol decoder written in Java. It uses the sound card input to sample the signals from a radio receiver.

jPOCSAG tries its best to exploit the NFM-demodulated signals from the receiver (aka "earphone plug"), so a discriminator output is not compulsory.

jPOCSAG is essentially a personal experiment that I think might interest other people. It functions correctly with my own setting, using a Yaesu/Vertex Standard VX-6. However, it is by no means supposed to be complete. Therefore please do not consider it is a released product. Rather, it is a codebase to experiment/play/tinker with, with no warranty of any kind.

Note that it is illegal to listen to or attempt to decode any non-public broadcast in many countries. Therefore this code is for legal use only, such as decoding amateur radio POCSAG traffic by authorized amateur radio operators.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
