Usrp_sounder.py problems

Hi!
I’m trying to use Channel Sounder based on PN sequences with:
GNU Radio 3.2.2.1
and USRP1 REV:4.5 with XCVR2450 REV 849 2.4GHz and 5 GHz Transceiver on
board.

Measurement environment - quite small room with balcony, distance
between Tx and Rx ~ 3m, LOS. Seqeunce - maximum length - 12.

I’ve founded this topic here http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/173241, but
what I got wasn’t the same as there.

Details:
At the TX side

[email protected]:~$ sudo usrp_sounder.py -f 2.4G -R B -t -v -D
Using PN code degree of 12 length 4095
Sounding frequency range is 2.384G to 2.416G
Using XCVR2450 Tx for sounder transmitter.
Asserting reset.
Writing mode register with: 0x1
Setting transmitter frequency to 2.4G
Setting PN code degree to 12
Disabling digital loopback.
Writing mode register with: 0x1
De-asserting reset.
Writing mode register with: 0x0
Enabling transmitter.
Writing mode register with: 0x2
Press return to exit.
Disabling transmitter.

Comparing this code with code from link above I can’t found this part in
code:
“db_xcvr2450_tx: init
Creating new xcvr2450 instance
xcvr2450: init with 47a50364: 0”

Rest’s the same.

At the RX side:

[email protected]:~/testy$ sudo usrp_sounder.py -f 2.4G -R B -r -v -D -F

so where is:

?

We were trying to start usrp_sounder.py on two laptops at the same time,
measure took maybe 2 minutes. Earlier we measured 3 sec, 30 sec, 1 min -
no changes in results.

After that we used a=read_complex_binary(‘output2.dat’) and plot(abs(a))
and we get this:

I’m sure that is not ok :slight_smile: Why we have problems with “Creating new
xcvr2450 instance” and we can’t get the same code line as
http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/173241. Is it connected with not correct
set up of usrp_sounder.py or to small distance between transmitter and
receiver side ?

Situation doesn’t change. We removed Basic Tx and Basic Rx from
motherboard.
We used usrp_fft.py and and it’s possible to see our defined at 2.4 GHz
transmition, so both XCVR2450 are connected and work fine. Buht that’s
all - we have no idea what we do wrong with usrp_sounder.py. Any
solution or some tips for us ?:slight_smile:
