In this section, you will capture some frames from the FLEX pager network and locate the frame synchronization word. The sync word allows the decoder to synchronize with the beginning of the message bits. A standard method for detecting the sync word is to correlate the incoming signal against the sync word.

You will also try to decode some of the message bits.

Review the theory on Frame Synchronization. Further description of frame synchronization is in the text CR Johnson, WA Sethares, Software Receiver Design, Cambridge, 2011 chapter 8, section 8.5.
