USRP Gain

Is there any documentation on what the gain does for the USRP receive
and
transmit functions. Sometimes it seems like these values are
meaningless.

Also, I am noticing that when I begin to Rx data, there is often a huge
amplitude spike within the first 2k samples I Rx. Is this normal?

Sometimes they are fixed. Have you queried the valid ranges for the
daughterboards you are using using bdev.gain_range()…

Outside of the Basic Tx and LF Tx, none of the d’boards have
adjustable transmit gain.

There’s a known problem in the first ~1K rx samples when the USRP is
first enabled.
