I believe I am at the point were I should be able to talk to the USRP,
We presently have the USRP with two BasicTX and BasicRX boards
We are running Fedora Core 5
We have installed GNU Radio per the instructions in the README as
closely as possible.
If I run the dial_tone.py example, I get the tones out of the
If I run the usrp_siggen.py it requires an RF center frequency. I have
no idea how this should be entered (i.e., it is in Hertz, MHz, ???)
./usrp_siggen.py -f 10
What I got was nine copies of a “connection timed out” message and a
complaint about it not being able to load the FPGA bitstream.
The bitstream it was trying to load was:
I know that there is at least some communication going on with the
board, because when I power it up I get the green LED blinking at a
little over 3Hz. When I run the siggen program, the blinking stops (it
usually goes away, but once stayed on continuously). I have to cycle
power to get the blinking light back.
I get the exact same behavior when I try to run the
test_usrp_standard_tx in the */host/apps directory.
Any help would be appreciated.
