I would like to get a few other programmers together and work on a P25 format decoder that will display all the information that both DSD and OP25 does exept that the program runs in windows. The program can be written in C++ or .net, this will depend on the programmers willing to contribute to this project.
For this project we are lucky in that a lot of the ground work has been done by the DSD people who have generously made thier source code available. It is my understanding that the OP25 programmers are willing to assist in a serious attempt to "port" thier program to windows. Futher there is a wealth of information on the P25 structure so that it should only be a matter of processing the input data stream with the apropriate sub routines to display the desired data.
I should mention that it is my intent that the program be public and available to all.
Anyone interested can reply in this thread.
Do keep in mind that DSD 1.4.1 source is available, but the other stuff up to including 1.6 are not [which added some things as filtering and fixed some problem that caused dsd to crash in certain instances].
Somewhere in the forums there are discussions about what was changed [and a windows binary only released] by other individuals that make the latest Win binary much preferable to the original Win binary. you'd be starting out with the original source from dsdauthor.
