Hi, I am a beginner in USRP for GNU Radio. I just buy two sets of USRP with RFX900 for our project. There is no any documents together with the package. That is fine for play USRP monther board. But when I want to test a transmitter and receiver between two sets of USRP+RFX900, there is no any readme documents address this, so I have to go through all files to find which file may be used to test RFX900. Furthermore there is even no comments in the .py file, so I have to understand all the codes in that file to decide how to build up a link between two RFX900. It is very difficult for many beginners like me to understand without readme and comments. Does anyone have suggestions for: 1. which files should I use to test link between two RFX900? 2. which file may I use to set the power gain for trasmitter? since my experience before is LNA in receiver has maximum input power limit. 3. which file may I use to set different waveforms? 4. Is there such documents addressing these for beginners? I find several folders include .py with regarding to usrp: /usrp/host/apps, /gr-usrp, /gnuradio-examples/usrp. and I am reading some of them: flexrf_siggen.py, flexrf_debug.py, usrp_siggen.py, usrp_oscope.py... It is really a painstaking for me now. Any advices is highly appreciated. Thank you very much! BR, Zhifeng

Hey , the best starting point is the tutorials at the link: http://www.nd.edu/~jnl/sdr/docs/tutorials/ for test the daughter board , use the examples in the usrp directory use the usrp_scope and usrp_siggen you can send a signal and receive it this way . About adjusting the PGA use "src.set_pga" thats all i can help with hope thats enough ziad zhifeng wrote: > It is very difficult for many beginners like me to understand without > usrp_oscope.py...

< http://www.nd.edu/~jnl/sdr/docs/tutorials/ > I keep seeing my group's tutorial (the "JNL" Group at UND, via the former group member Dawei Shen) mentioned on this list as a good reference; I agree wholeheartedly! As some folks have pointed out, while it is somewhat out of date w/r.t. obtaining and installation, it still provides plenty of good nuggets and advice on getting started with GNU Radio. The good news for GNU Radio users is that JNL has put some grad students to work this summer revising the tutorials to bring them up to date! I'll post more when we get new documents up and available. - MLD
