Hi all!
While trying to use the latest version of GR on Windows, I am receiving
the same error discussed here (No module named
The new version of the GR is particularly appealing to me as in the GRC,
there seem to be are "Fading model" and "Frequency selective fading"
blocks that I would like to use.
Is there a way to somehow "import" these blocks so that I can use them
in version 2.6?

Hi Kresimir,

sadly, the answer to your question is "no", unless you start backporting
stuff yourself.
I know this is kind of not really a satsfying answer, but: If you don't
really really rely on GNU Radio running under windows, I strongly
recommend looking into linux as GNU Radio development platform; maybe
first try running it in a virtual machine, see if it is big of a problem
using linux.

Then: If you want to sound "real" channels (big scale outdoor ones, at
least), try the excellent gr-channelsounder: that runs under GR 3.6; it
will give you channel models that can be directly used.

Hope that helped anyway,
