Thank you again, George! Did you mean that I just need to forget about the packets transmitted in the first 10 or more microsecond by the USRPs? Maybe I have a misunderstanding of initiation. Does initiation mean every time I plug in the power cable of USRP to transmit or every time I press the “enter” button to start the transmission once again with power cable already on it?

Why don’t you just try it and find out? Start by thowing away 20
samples at start, and see if you see the spike. If you do, try throwing
away 30 samples. If you still see it, continue until you don’t.

Thank you for your guidance, George!
