Open Range Pitch Tracking for Carrier Frequency Difference Estimation from HF Transmitted Speech

03/02/2021 ∙ by Joerg Schmalenstroeer, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper we investigate the task of detecting carrier frequency differences from demodulated single sideband signals by examining the pitch contours of the received baseband speech signal in the short-time spectral domain. From the detected pitch frequency trajectory and its harmonics a carrier frequency difference, which is caused by demodulating the radio signal with the wrong carrier frequency, can be deduced. A computationally efficient realization in the power cepstral domain is presented. The core component, i.e., the pitch tracking algorithm, is shown to perform comparably to a state of the art algorithm. The full carrier frequency difference estimation system is tested on recordings of real transmissions over HF links. A comparison with an existing approach shows improved estimation accuracy, both on short and longer speech utterances
