Morse Decoder feature

This plugin can decode Morse transmissions using the AM, NFM, SSB or WFM demodulators. It is based on the GGMorse library although it is actually my personal fork to make it suitable for use in SDRangel. More details here

Note that it is not available in the Windows distribution because GGMorse does not compile properly in this environment.

Interferometer enhancements

Interferometer enhancements

Following #2089 more functionality added to the Interferometer plugin so that it has now a gain adjustment control in addition to phase difference control. Also it now has the possibility to send the correlated I/Q samples to a Local Input device to be further processed in a source (Rx) stream. Primary purpose is to support noise suppression using two synchronized Rx streams (thus coming from a MIMO device with 2 coherent channels) by connecting these Rx inputs to two different antennas similarly to what is done in SDRuno with a SDRduo device. For now tested successfully on a Red Pitaya in Metis mode (Pavel Demin's firmware) using the Metis MISO plugin.

  • Interferometer: added channel B gain control
  • Interferometer: implement gain and phase in API
  • Interferometer: list local input devices and make update settings atomic
  • Interferometer: added possibility to send correlated IQ to a Local Input device
  • Interferometer: added localDeviceIndex and play to API

Some fixes to the Local Sink plugin are also included to this occasion:

  • LocalSink: refactored getLocalDevice method
  • LocalSink: update local input device list at construction time

New SID Feature Plugin

New SID Feature Plugin

This new feature is introduced by @srcejon The purpose of this feature is to detect Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances (SID) due to solar activity and that can be observed by monitoring several VLF transmitters. More information here

Introducing FT-chirp

A "FT" mode has been added to the ChirpChat modulator and demodulator. It uses the same protocol as FT8 (or FT4) to encode 174 bits with CRC and FEC. Then instead of using a 8-FSK modulation it will use chirp symbols to put the message on the air. It is quite different from the original FT8 however since the bandwidth is significantly larger (minimum 375 Hz) and only one transmission is decoded at a time. However since it uses the chirp synchronization sequence at the start of the transmission it is not tied to the clock. Long distance transmissions have been experimented on HF with a websdr on the Rx side. Due to the relative small bandwidth and slow transmission it is important that there is a minimal clock drift. With websds using the browser as the audio source there is usually a small drift to compensate the clock skew between the web site and the audio device on the computer. This results in possible message loss although the signal is still quite visible on the spectrogram. When using a SDR receiver directly this should not happen.
