Help on "easy" digital TX/RX

Hello!
As to introduct me, im very new to GnuRadio and the general topic of
SDR.
However, i have a project in which i should implement a very basic way
of
sending packets. This given packet format has a constant preamble and a
constant length of appended databits. For detecting those out of a
stream
etc. ive already written a working matlab script, now im stuck at the
GnuRadio side.
As a simple Presentation it would be enough to save a captured bitstream
from GnuRadio to harddrive which i later load in Matlab and send it
through
my script.

So my question is, how can setup the most easily a one way tx/rx
connection
between 2 SDR’s, without any packet format or, which simply gives me the
received bits? My basic idea is like that:
TX:

RX:
http://gnuradio.4.n7.nabble.com/file/n38924/rx.png
I simply cant get it working at all. It would be too kind if somebody
could
give me some kind of introduction how to handle that.

Regards

Hanz,

You have a few options. You can build a digital tx/rx in GRC, run an
example like tunnel.py, etc. I’ve also created a set of examples with a
libraby called pre-cog, which you can see here:

An updated url to the pre-cog github pages:

If you do use pre-cog, feel free to send any questions. It’s a
work-in-progress and the documentation may not explain everything…

Thank you for the advising! That looks like something what i could use.
I just came up with another question:
I simply tried to simulate a DPBSK Path with noise, loaded from a file
and
sinked to a file. Between Demod and Sink i placed a “Pack K Bits” with
K=8.

But my received data just contains 0’s! It has the right length, but
just
zeros… Any ideas anyone?

I now have 2 new problems :frowning:

  1. I have a random source hooked to a Modulator and then to USRP. From
    the
    same device i listen at the same Frequency. But since the antennas are
    just
    a few cm’s away, the constellation graph is completely diffuse and the
    points are anywhere, there arent any fixed points noticeable. Do I have
    to
    change something at the gain or add something?

  2. How can i differentiate if there is a signal receiving or just some
    background noise. I mean if i put the Demodulator directly after the
    USRP
    and stream it to file, then of course ill mostly get just random
    amplified
    noise…

Few tips, the modulator tags packed bytes, so the random source should
be [0, 256)

The modulator produces amplitude 1.0 samples. You will want to scale
these down as fullscale can clip. Either multiply constant block or
fullscale stream arg in UHD block:

Put the output of the modulator on a the FFT plotter. You should see the
response of the matched filter.
