CTCSS fingerprinting: A method for transmitter identification

plot-lock

Oona Räisänen from Absorptions wrote an article about experimenting with CTCSS fingerprinting:

Identifying unknown radio transmitters by their signals is called radio fingerprinting. It is usually based on rise-time signatures, i.e. characteristic differences in how the transmitter frequency fluctuates at carrier power-up. Here, instead, I investigate the fingerprintability of another feature in hand-held FM transceivers, known as CTCSS or Continuous Tone-Coded Squelch System.
