If you're trying to send a sine wave, this will work much better:
(Generates a complex sinusoid == exp(jwt))

  sig_source_c -> head -> usrp.sink_c

Or you could use a hilbert transform to generate the quadrature
component.  float_to_complex will be setting Q to zero the way you're
using it.

See above.
