Fine. Tks for replies.
I'm not concerned about the RX stability contribution-that's under control (or should be!) But for non-GPS disciplined TXs I wondered just how good they would have to be to be able to be 'observed'-as in how much latitude there was for the transmitted frequency to be offset from the nominal. Seems like plus/minus 1 Hz may be the limit as per Scotts email, although as Murray points out, the phase info will probably be of no particular value for such sources, always assuming the source remains inside the above limits over the integration time.
Possible 'targets' noted, Murray- Is there a source from Antarctica on
exactly 20 kHz? I had a look for the 19.1 kHz TX down there last year
but as it was only on for 60 seconds at a time every few minutes I
didnt 'copy' it. Not sure if it's still running-must check.
I'll get back to you re a test on 181.4 some time soon.

Dave

Your RX needs to be stable to within a Hz if it is Clicklock can deal with the variations... If the RX is say 2 Hz off calibration then simply offset the integer value set in phase scope to deal with this... RX stability to within a Hz (+- 0.5Hz) is the most important feature and most LF receivers do this well. Otherwise the Clicklock alg. can deal with it...
I'm sure Peter will go on and on about this shortly :-)

Good luck.
Scott

Hi Scott
Wondering just how close to nominal does the tx have to be maintained to stay 'in view' so to speak?

PhaseScope based on the 'Clicklock' algorithm by Peter Martinez, G3PLX is now available for download and testing by interested experimenters.
Download the archive here:
http://www3.telus.net/sthed/phasescope/

I have only tested it on a system running Windows XP. If you are interested in a MAC or Linux build let me know as the API used and the coding allows this... An earlier Linux alpha version was tested successfully...
The package comes with detailed instructions.

Comments and bug reports encouraged.
