So, if you want a "near" stock, open loop, coarse frequency estimation
and correction for GMSK (GFSK with h=1/2), then have a loog at gr-ais'
square_and_fft_sync_cc block, along with its freqest block:


It works because the spectrum of a GMSK signal has two spectral peaks
spaced equidistant from the center frequency.

It works best with continuous, fairly evenly distributed, between mark
and space, data.  It can get fooled at the start or end of a burst, or
during a long run of mark or space.
