Thank you all, for your replies!
I am a bit confused about the 10 rate decimation, which just gets one
halfband (the low rate one) - as explained in USRP2 FAQ. Does this affect
the power level that I will later measure?
I thought about using 8 which is also a multiple of 4, but it is a very
unfortunate fraction and I would like to keep as much as possible from the
original band, plus the 10 rate will also decrease the load on my processor.
So, is the 10 rate decimation in fact a good candidate for what I'm trying
to do or I'm better of using 8 with a 1.5625 rational resampler?
Thank you all.
