Re: Truncated RT data for RDS within SDR#
There are some very poor FM Stereo/RDS transmissions in the US, all the exceptions to the rules can be found there.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Round here the BBC appears to be excellent, as do all national broadcasts I can pick up (France always, all of Europe and N. Africa when there's Sporadic-E).

Does the length of the text modulo four suggest anything to you? If so this is a lack of defensive programming I've brought to Youssef's attention several times now. Some equipment does not terminate the left over bytes in a four byte text frame according to specification. So the frame gets marked as an error and is never displayed. The fix is very easy to make. (I have a very old version of SDRSharp from when the source was available but not "open" in the conventional sense. I made the change and use it for the radio I keep running 24/7 on the local listener supported classical music station here in Los Angeles. (Pumps hand for KUSC.)
