Testing GNURadio Feature #400

All,

I’m currently implementing GNURadio’s Feature #400<
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/issues/show/400>. The problem is that I
don’t
have test equipment or a USRP2. Before I commit this code, I’d like to
get
it properly tested. Would it be at all possible for anyone to run this
on
the USRP2? I’ve hooked it up to the waterfall scope, but it’s just not
the
same. :slight_smile:
