Do you have another device that can be used to receive or transmit?
That’s
really the only way to know for sure what your signal looks like.
Another
USRP perhaps? Or you could look into getting one of the RTL-SDR devices
for
cheap. Or my personal favorite cheap signal detector/debugger:

My wife will demand a divorce when I start carrying such a pink “Hello
Kitty” device with me :slight_smile: Is there a more serious looking version
available?

Much nicer :slight_smile:

My Swiss army knife in RF is a RTL2832/E4000 stick, the Hama nano
DVB-T-Receiver.
http://dk5ras.dyndns.org/tmp/nano.jpg - unplugged after taking a look at
a LTE channel with it.

It is SMALL, it is (unlike the other cheap sticks) almost perfectly
shielded, when you unplug the MCX connector, then there is NOTHING left
but internal spurious peaks… I like it that much that I even ordered a
spare one, in case I fry again a RTL4000 tuner chip for unknown reason
or simply lose the tiny little thing.

Can’t repeat it often enough, hdsdr, sdr#, RTL2832, USRP1, gnuradio -
this opens a whole new world for RF enthusiasts. We live in an exciting
decade!

How about this:

My wife would get a serious case of the giggles if I used a pink
spectrum analyzer.
