Be advised that mbelib may not be legal to use, hence the anonymity of the authors.

This ambiguity could be eliminated if someone created a block to use an AMBE-3000 device. 

One source of AMBE devices is  http://nwdigitalradio.com/thumbdv-and-dv3000-resource-page (I am affiliated with this company).

Talking to the AMBE-3000 devices listed is pretty straightforward, should someone be inclined.

Open the device as a serial port at 230.4 kbps.

It's a simple packet interface and every packet has a reply.

Send a reset packet  hex 61 00 01 00 33 at program startup

Then query for model number packet with hex 61 00 01 00 30 and look for AMBE3000 in reply 

Set D-STAR mode with 61 00 0c 00 0a 01 30 07 63 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 48
Set Yaesu, P25 , DMR, etc. HR mode with 61 00 0c 00 0a 04 31 07 54 24 00 00 00 00 00 6F 48 
(See page 83 of AMBE-3000 manual -- link below)

From there, you send in audio  16-bit linear PCM data sampled at 8 kHz in packets and it sends out AMBE in packets. (You can also use 8-bit ulaw/alaw but the PCM is better quality)

Audio header is 61 01 42 02 00 A0

Or send in AMBE packets and receive audio packets.

AMBE header is 61 00 0B 01 01 48

Pretty much it, just need to frame packet data based on the packet protocol.

The manual is at http://www.dvsinc.com/manuals/AMBE-3000_manual.pdf -- see Chapter 6.  Current software uses the non-parity field version, but you are free to use either.

My first touch to the Gnu Radio happened this weekend. I managed to listen a local FM repeater but building a DMR receiver was too tough.

Please, could someone send me a simple working DMR receiver file (*.grc) which has a DSD block.

Thanks advanced
