Yes, it certainly could be done from an IQ file. Not an audio WAVE file as the RDS signal is not present.

Thanks for the prompt reply. The future looks bright.

In fact this piece of software is really outstanding! I'm wondering if something similar can be build to extract RDS signals from Broadcast FM IQ/WAV Files ?

Why not making it an option, while you have already written the code ? Just let the user choose.

Thanks for the clarifications Chris.

I am not sure I understand what you mean?

In DGPSSTATIONSLISTING.TXT the row sequnece is
Freq;Baud;Station ID;Ref1;Ref2;Location;Country;Lat;Long

But according to the Readme file it should be
Station ID;Ref1;Ref2;Freq;Baud;Lat;Long;Location;Country

The latter one is working as it should.

Hello Chris,

I've been testing the Windows version of the Amalgamated DGPS application on a W10 system. Very nice program !  There are however a few thing that al least makes me puzzled.

- First of all I'm wondering what the difference is between the blue and the black decodes.

- The User defined stations list that comes with the program has a wrong file name : DGPSSTATIONLISTING.TXT while it should be dgps_station_list.txt as per the instructions in the Readme file

- The row sequence in the stations list that comes with the program is not correct and doesn't fit with the instructions in the readme file.

- It would be better to make the "Max zCount error" 6 as advised in the Readme file. Too many newcomers that don't like RTFM'ing drop interest while they think it doesn't work as it should.

- The readme file says "Amalgamated DGPS can decode the entire 285 to 325 kHz DGPS beacon band ". But according to https://www.ndblist.info/datamodes/worldDGPSdatabase.pdf the band starts at 283.5. Are those stations skipped ?

For the rest, I'm really astonished what this little piece of software is doing.  I'm using it together with Perseus IQ files.  It saves such a lot of time of decoding frequency by frequency. Really great work !

Greetings from Belgium.
