ber_tx.png I am trying to find the Bit error rate for a vector signal.I get a error rate of 0.528(i am assuming it to be 52%) when i don't transmit and an error rate of 0.625000 when i transmit. Am i right on this??i dont understand the logic behind it.. Also,is 52% not too high??!!! thank you

I am trying to find the Bit error rate for a vector signal.I get a error Around 50% BER is what you would expect from a random signal. 100% BER is very good since you just need to flip all the bits and you get the right answer! That is also given the input signal statistics are sufficiently whitened/random.
You might want to take a step away from putting blocks in GRC and just take a look at some of the resources on the GNU Radio wiki about suggested reading: Sanity is hard to come by if you're dealing with magic.

Just tagging on here... The way you have it set up is compare the

And it will alternately compare incoming bits between 1 and 0. This BER block will probably not be useful if you don't have access (within this flowgraph) to the source generating data. >> >> >> thank you >> >> > > You might want to take a step away from putting blocks in GRC and just take > a look at some of the resources on the GNU Radio wiki about suggested > reading: > > http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/SuggestedReading > http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/SuggestedReadingOrder > > Sanity is hard to come by if you're dealing with magic. If you haven't looked at examples yet you should do that too. They are probably located in /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/ There's a BER example at /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/digital/demod/ber_simulation.grc > > Good Luck! > > Brian > _______________________________________________ Discussgnuradio mailing list [hidden email] https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/discussgnuradio
