Is there an initial condition to the differential encoder? Seems odd that they wouldn't just send the 148 pi/2 phase shifts. -Clark

Hello everyone.

I am looking at the frequency correction burst of a GSM signal.
According to spec the original data defines 148 bits of 0 that are
differentially encoded and GMSK modulated.  After the data goes
through the differential encoder it ends up as [-1,1,1, (142 1s),
1,1,1].  I have taken this burst and plotted I vs Q (which is
attached).  I was expecting to see the amplitude ramp up followed by a
negative pi/2 phase shift, followed by 147 positive pi/2 phase shifts,
and a ramp down. I never see the initial negative phase shift though.
Am I missing something in my sanity? Any thoughts or ideas?

Thank you for your time
