# Help on GRC to transmit at a specific frequency and width

Hi @ all

Sorry, this stuff is new for me and therfore sorry for a possible stupid
question . I play a little with GRC and want to transmit e.g. a
cosine-wave at a specific frequency e.g. at 900MHz and width, say 2MHz.
But my problem are as following:

If i add only 2 blocks, i got nice constant transmission but the width
are too large, say more than Â± 30 Mhz

| signal | | | source:
sample_rate: 1M, waveform:cosine, Frequency: 1k, Amplitude: 100
| source |--------->| usrp2 sink | usrp2 sink:
interpolation: 64, Frequency: 900 MHz, Gain: 0
|__________| |______________|

Is it possible to add a filter between the singal source and the usrp2
sink, maybe the band pass filter? Or is ist only possible with a
hardware filter behind the ursp2?
In case of the band pass filter: which values are right? I tried:
decimation=1, gain=1, samplerate=200k, lowcut=200k, highcut=200k,
transition width=200k. Or shoud the low- und highcut equals to the
frequency at 900 MHz and therfore a samplerate of 1.8 GHz?
I played a while with various values but without success.

The sample rate of the signal source is 1M. The sample rate of the usrp2

The USRP2 expects its input to be be between 0 and 1.0. Try using
Amplitude = 0.1
