Even after downconversion to 0 Hz IF, there will be a residual carrier
based on the frequency stability of the transmitter and receiver.  The
Costas loop block will track out this carrier until its output is
truly baseband.  Due to the difference in crystal timebases between
the transmitter and receiver (or relative motion causing Doppler),
there will also be a timing error, with the M&M block will handle.
