Using my usrp2+RFX2400 and the GRC with gnuradio 3.2svn,
I’ve recorded a wimax signal out of a RF signal generator.
However, I found some issues with the result and ask you guys for some
(I tried to search on these issues, but only found some about usrp.)
- The biggest problem is the dynamic range of the signal:
The recorded signal showed only about 25dB between the in-band spectrum
level(-25dBm/RBW) and the noise floor (-50dBm/RBW) while the original
signal shows at least 45dB.
I wonder if this is normal with the given hardware of usrp2. If not the
please let me know how to improve it.
(The input signal was CH power of -14dBm, which was chosen to avoid the
3rd order distortion.)
I see the minimum decimation rate of usrp2 is still 4 with GRC, and
wonder if there is any way to further reduce it such as 3 or 2?
What is the data format of the usrp2_source()? I see that it is
complex, but I’d like to know more precisely such as float, double,
or… (pls forgive me if someone have answered on this question but I’d
appreciate if you answer on this too.)
