hi, pls am a postgraduate student of brunel university west london, M.Sc Wireless communication systems, working on 'design and implementation of software defined radio for digital communication' preferably 3G. i've never programmed in python, and the problem am having now is that the hardware 'usrp' only works in Linux and the programming is done on python. i need the HELP about the program. hope u'll be able to help. thanks Kenneth ___________________________________________________________ Yahoo!

I face this problem when I started working with the USRP. Fortunately, you can install Sygwin. you can find the instruction on the link http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/CygwinInstallMain Sygwin will make a Linux environment in windows, so you do NOT have to install Linux Be careful, the installation will take at least 4 hours without mistake (according to my experience) and it is very tricky. the best way to run your USRP is by using Linux (Ubuntu for example), it is the platform that I have now and it works perfectly. you can find the installations instructions in th link http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UbuntuInstall. -- Alaelddin

I learned Python with the Pyton Tutorial http://docs.python.org/tut/ Take a day or two to learn it, it's a wonderful language! For a quick start into Linux (I'm trying to build with Cygwin/Windows, but that's hard these days), I'd agree with Alaelddin. Try out the Ubuntu Live CD , you don't need to install anything until you'r familiar with Linux.

Hi I prefer Ubuntu. it works in Cygwin , but it is tricky. The Gnu Radio is free to use. what you have to do is to install it in Ubuntu as described in http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UbuntuInstall , then try to run some examples and see how the code looks like. --Alaelddin
