Hi All, and thank you All for your Answers in my last thread. Now i want to know, how i can convert the showing values in the Y-Axis of the FFT-Plot Sink to dB, so that i can interpret this correctly. Do i have to define the max and min input value first ? Results an input voltage 3.3V in the max Value(0dBFS) i can watch in the FFT-Plot sink ? Results an input voltage 0V in the min Value i can watch in the FFT-Plot sink ? As Stefan BrÃ¼ns said in my last Thread: "The reference point is 0dbFS - FS meaning Full Scale, -32768...32767. The signal power you need to get this readings from the ADC, or more exactly from the FPGA depends on the daughterboard, PGA setting on the daughterboard, decimation ... You have to calibrate your USRP to get from the sampling values to input power in Watts." So if i read for example the value +7.079 from my FFT-Plot Sink, what does this mean ? Is this higher than the reference(0dBFS) Point ? I thouht the reference is the highest point. How can i calibrate my USRP to get from the sampling values to input power in dBW ? I experimented with an example(See Attachment), but this example use a virtual signal(software generated signal) Amplitude of Signal: Value of FFT-Plot: 10e-3 -12.921 100e-3 7.079 1000e-3 27.079 So inreasing the Value with the multiply of 10 let the y-Axis of the FFT-Plot increase by 20dB. This behaves like dBW not dBV ? Regards Markus

I found the following function in <gnuradio.usrp> : set_adc_offset(self, int which_adc, int offset) But it doesn't change anything in my program. How to use this function correctly?
