(subdev.select_rx_antenna(“RX2”)) are you using a multiplication

Yes,the sinusoid is coming from a waveform generator and that is
using usrp_siggen.py on another computer/USRP.
When you send the tone, can you see it on the receiving computer
(with an FFT, or an oscope), and what is the signal level? if its
pretty low (like 10dB or less), you may have to put a multiplication
block in the transmitter.
Yes, I am selecting RX2, and transmitting on TX/RX without any
multiplication block on the transmitter end. The RX PGA gain is 75.
Is there any relation with the decimation and interpolation for RX
Are you receiving and transmitting at different sampling rates? I
don’t see why a sinusoid would be distorted because of one sampling
rate over another. What is the frequency of the tone you are
sending? And the sampling rate? If the frequency of the tone is half
(or more of the sampling rate, you may be in trouble).
BTW, What is the distortion you are seeing? are there lots of images
(if there are, you may be transmitting at too high of a signal
level)? is the signal taking up too much bandwidth? FWIW, I have had
experiences where it was less about my USRP, and more about my
settings on my oscope =)
