Hi Andrew,

general github questions are off-topic on the GNU Radio mailing list, so I was presuming you're specifically asking about how the GNU Radio Free and Open Source ecosystem works.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood you:

> I want to suggest or add myself, a TCP port to a QTMM packet radio decoder in github.

I read this as "I want to have a feature in a GNU Radio-based software, how do I, through github, request that feature". And the answer to that question would be: you generally don't. You get in touch with the author and ask how one would implement that, and implement it, or motivate the author (or someone else) to implement it. AFTER you have implemented it, ok, that's the time where you might want to merge your code with the original code, and that might be done via github. But that's a far way in the future, and github has excellent documentation on how to do that, and also I'm pretty sure it'd be optimal if you first agreed with the original author on how they want to merge the changes.

Best regards,

Hi Andrew,

I don't really understand why you titled this "github help"; code first, then publish or upstream into main GNU Radio. In your case, this isn't something that is universally usable for anyone, so I'd say it's certainly something that would live in an "out-of-tree module" (OOT). (I don't know what QTMM is, but I think it's some relatively obscure amateur radio packet format)

So, there's no request you should raise – just write it, and publish it as your own!

I think I have to modify the c code and add in a socket.

GNU Radio is C++, not C, and yes, you'll add a socket *somewhere* but that's certainly not all you'll have to do. I think it's best if I pointed you to the guided tutorials:


They introduce how to write your own modules. You'll need to know that before you can do something with GNU Radio!

Maybe you don't even have to write your own modules, but can combine existing ones to do what you need. But I don't know what QTMM is / does, so I can't help you with that.

Best regards,
