• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Given a received signal samples, the objective is to determine the modulation scheme that is present in the signal and demodulate data if required.

Example : Assume that we know that the received signal contains one of the two schemes BPSK or QPSK in the presence of noise. The problem is to say which is present. How to go on with this problem statement. What will be the good solutions.

You also know the Baud rate and encoding? I assume BPSK31 Varicode and QPSK31 Varicode?!
If yes, why not demodulating and decoding both and decide on the decoded output text?
For programmatic decision you may look for "CQ"s or other well known words. A simpler alternative would just present both texts to the user and let him decide. This way one could utilize "error correction" of the human eye - and eliminate false (automatic) decision.

Sorry, we are talking about different things. Determine the mode of modulation/manipulation some unknown signal(e.g. PSK-2, PSK-4, QAM, OFDM, C4FM etc) and direct analysis of the bitstream a bit different things. I'm sorry again.
