k9an-wsprd is a decoder for K1JT's Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR) mode. The program is written in C and is a command-line program that reads from a .c2 file or .wav file and writes output to the console. It is designed so that it can be used as a drop-in replacement for the wsprd program that wspr-x uses for decoding. k9an-wsprd requires only one external library: libfftw3 COMPILING: A bare-bones Makefile is included. USAGE: k9an-wsprd [options] infile -a <path> path to writeable data files, default="." -c write .c2 file at the end of the first pass -C maximum number of decoder cycles per bit -d deeper search. Slower, a few more decodes -e x (x is transceiver dial frequency error in Hz) -f x (x is transceiver dial frequency in MHz) -F use the Fano decoder instead of stack decoder -H do not use (or update) the hash table -m decode wspr-15 .wav file -q quick mode - doesn't dig deep for weak signals -s single pass mode, no subtraction (same as original wsprd) -v verbose mode (shows dupes) -w wideband mode - decode signals within +/- 150 Hz of center -z x (x is fano metric table bias, default is 0.42) infile can be either .wav or .c2 e.g. ./k9an-wsprd -wf 14.0956 140709_2258.wav Note that for .c2 files, the frequency within the file overrides the command line value. FEATURES: By default, k9an-wsprd reports signals that are within +/- 110 Hz of the subband center frequency. The wideband option (-w) extends this to +/- 150 Hz. k9an-wsprd maintains a hashtable and will decode all three types of wspr messages. An option (-H) is available to turn off use of the hashtable. The symbols are decoded using Phil Karn's sequential decoder routine, fano.c. NOTES: This program attempts to maximize the number of successful decodes per transmit interval by trying to decode virtually every peak in the averaged spectrum. The program also implements two-pass decoding, whereby signals that are successfully decoded are subtracted one-by-one during the first decoding pass. Then, the decoder is run again. In many cases the subtraction process will uncover signals that can then be successfully decoded on the second pass. There will be occasional duplicate decodes when two closely spaced peaks come from the same signal. The program removes dupes based on callsign and frequency. Two decodes that have the same callsign and estimated frequencies that are within 1 Hz will be treated as decodes of the same signal. This dupechecking is turned off with the -v flag.
