This directory (and the resulting tarball) contains a build tree for gr-dab.

gr-dab contains everything needed to get audio from DAB and DAB+

Much of the code was developed as part of "Google Summer of Code 2017" by Moritz Luca Schmid. (the completion of audio reception of DAB and DAB+). His fork can be found here: The fork also contains everything needed for transmission of DAB radio. It does however have a number of external dependencies which makes it slightly more tricky to install than this version without TX.

This package requires that gnuradio-core is already installed. It also depends on some GNU Radio prerequisites, such as Boost and cppunit. Additionally it depends on the FAAD2 library. (ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libfaad-dev, fedora: sudo dnf install faad2-devel)

To build the examples from the tarball run these commands:

  $ mkdir build
  $ cd build
  $ cmake ../
  $ make
  $ sudo make install
  $ sudo ldconfig

Additional notes

To build gr-dab, please take into account:

  • gr-dab does not work with GNU Radio 3.3; I usually work with the master branch from the GNU Radio git repository

  • for the simulations in python/channel_tests/, you need the following additional dependencies:
