Awesome! And nice job on the pretty pictures! I think this is strong evidence that we should get access to a real satellite simulator, soon.
Though I don't understand why it saw a -14.8kHz Doppler shift. The original file is a zero-IF sample. Did you set the HackRF at a center frequency different than 1575.42MHz, or multiply the file sample by a sine wave, perhaps? That seems outside the range of reasonable clock errors to me. Hey, does your copy of soft-correlator produce the same output mine does for the looped original prn1? It looks like we didn't push the change that sets the IF center frequency to 0 instead of 1.95MHz. Notice the bogus satellites have very low signal/noise ratios (although you should be skeptical of my math for computing those, FYI). Apparently my heuristic is wrong for guessing that a satellite is visible; I based it on my clock error estimate, and all of that is something I made up, not something I've seen documented as the usual way to build a receiver.
