Does the bpsk block you're using have some form of timing correction
in it? More than likely the data is being run through some sort of
filter (either explicitly or effectively) and the zeros at the
beginning are a warm up from the padding.
If you'd like the output to be 'nice' from a mathematical point of
view you will have to deconstruct the mod/demod blocks a little bit
and remove the timing correction stages and make sure that your
simulated channel does not introduce any timing corrections.
Thanks Jason. I have not delved into the code of the dbpsk demodulator GRC block yet so I am unsure. I was hoping someone with experience using this GRC block could answer quicker.
I believe the block has a root raised cosine filter in it so it would make sense that it would have zeros to start but I am not sure why I get 13 bytes of output data back from 2 bytes of input data.
