Those files are supposed to contain baseband samples.

You have scared me.

Gnuradio implements many modulation schemes. UHD provides an interface
to send/recv baseband samples. You should use gnuradio w/ UHD to
implement a receiver and transmitter chain.

I highly recommend installing gr-uhd component and getting familiar w/
