Subject: Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] [ input ] -> [ PSK mod ]
-> [ PSK Demod ] -> [ output ] => [ input ] != [ output ] - interesting
If this helps, the psk mod inputs packed bytes, however the demod
outputs unpacked bytes, where each byte is a decoded symbol. Obviously
you need some kind of framer correlate to reconstruct the packed byte
boundaries outside of the demod. It might be more comparable to use a
unpacked to packed block before the demod. That way both input and
output data is unpacked.
