You *must not* do apt-get install gnuradio, because Ubuntu's GNU Radio depends on Ubuntu's UHD which will automatically and inevitably be installed; so you must uninstall gnuradio, uhd-host, and your manually installed UHD now, before doing things with pybombs.

I got the same UHD version (shown below) when I use apt-get for installation. I will try the PyBOMBS now...

$ python top_block.py
linux; GNU C++ version 4.8.2; Boost_105400; UHD_003.005.005-0-unknown
$ apt-get install gnuradio

Hi Marcus,

I updated the flow graph (attached) as you suggested. It would be great if you can help check and let me know if I am wrong...

For upgrading the UHD, I followed this link. UHD is installed successfully. However, it seems that gnuradio does not call the latest UHD. Instead, it still calls uhd-host which is combined in the gnuradio package. Do you have suggestions about how to solve this problem? Thanks.

Thanks for the inspiring tips. I did not use the WX GUI scope for checking the phase offset. Instead, I log the baseband signal received by each RX antenna. Then, I plot the IQ constellation of the received baseband for checking their phase offset.

Can you be a bit more specific when you say the "multi_usrp object" and the "timed commands"? Are there tutorials that I can follow step by step for using the two functions you mentioned? Your comments are very helpful :)

A source/sink block in Gnu Radio uses an underlying multi_usrp object, so all you have to do is configure your source block for two channels, with
  two devices, and use


In the device arguments.

Also, recent gr-uhd ( and newer at least) use timed commands, so phase-zeroing will happen after a tune automatically, without you having
  to do anything.

The top of the UHD manual is here:


The Doxygen docs are here:


The documents for gr-uhd are part of the Gnu Radio documentation:


Uninstall all your uhd and gnuradio packages, and re-install, following the guide here:
