During the last couple of days, I've been adding the bits required to support frequency-hopping BTSs in OpenBSC. Now everything looks great in the protocol traces - but unfortunately it still doesn't work, at least not with the Siemens BS-11 that I have access to.
Will continue to try to make it work. The big advantage of having a hopping BTS under our control is that we can define the hopping sequence - something quite useful once we get to the point where we'd like to add frequency hopping to the telephone-side stack (OsmocomBB).
The good news is that I had to fix lots of bugs in the A-bis OML dissector for wireshark that I wrote some time ago. It's now much more complete and definitely a big step further towards eventually getting it included in wireshark mainline.
